Valdosta man killed riding bike

January 18, 2007

Valdosta - A 61 year-old bicyclist was hit by a pickup truck and killed in Valdosta Wednesday night.

Clarence Robinson was riding along Bemiss Road when he was struck by the truck, driven by 66 year-old John Wilkinson of Hahira.

Robinson was riding his bike in the northbound lane of the road when he was hit.

Witnesses and Troopers with the Georgia State Patrol say there were no reflectors or lights on the bike.  "By Georgia state law you are suppose to have a front head light and at least a rear reflector but because you are suppose to ride with traffic, a rear light would be the best. They make small LED lights that put out a ton of light and just make you more visible," says Blake Waagner, owner of a bike shop in Remerton.

Wilkinson won't be charged.
