ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman is in critical condition at the hospital after getting hit by a car as she rode a bicycle.  The accident happened just before 11:00AM on South Slappey Boulevard.

46-year-old Joyce Ann Cullen was riding her bicycle South on the sidewalk near the intersection of South Slappey and Cherry Avenue. At some point she turned into traffic and was hit by a 1988 Ford Bronco.

A driver stopped at that intersection saw the accident and said that Cullen may have tried to avoid hitting her when she rode into straight traffic.

"She realized that was me at the stop sign, because I was getting ready to turn," said Tasha Lewis. "So she eased at and pulled out directly in front of the truck. And it just hit her, and I saw when it pulled her on down. I mean she just pulled out. So to me it was just unavoidable."

31-year-old Reginald James Russell was driving that Bronco heading North on Slappey Boulevard when he hit her.

The accident is still under investigation, and no charges have been filed.
