TIFTON,  GA (WALB) – A Tifton man is dead and another Tifton man is in serious condition this afternoon after their motorcycle and bicycle collided Tuesday morning.

The Georgia State Patrol says around 5:30, 57-year-old Delano Nickelson was traveling south on Highway 319 in Tifton. 55-year-old Gary Brewer, also from Tifton, was traveling east on New River Church Road. Troopers say Brewer pulled out in front of Nickelson. When they crashed, both men were thrown off their bikes.

Nickelson, who was on the motorcycle, was killed instantly. Brewer was flown to a Macon hospital because of the seriousness of his injuries. Both men were wearing helmets.
