According to Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler, Glen Kelly Sr. died after he was hit by a mail truck.

Police said Kelly was heading east on East Broad Avenue in the westbound lane when a Gruman LLV Mail Carrier hit Kelly head-on while heading west in the same lane.

The driver of the mail truck told police he did not see Kelly until the accident happened.

“You need to wear light clothes or have some kind of reflectors, something on your bike, wheelchair. If you are going to be walking or either running, you need to have something on so someone can be able to see you because there are some dark areas on the street,” said Fowler.

APD said no charges will be filed in this case.
