DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

An Albany bicyclist is upset that police did not charge the driver who hit him.
    

Last week, Lonnie Wormley told WALB he was stopped at the intersection of Lily Pond Road and Old Pretoria Road when he was struck by a car.
We finally got an explanation from Dougherty County Police.
They say that intersection is narrow and the driver didn't have much room to make the turn.
Wormley doesn't think that's a good answer and believes things would've been different if he had been in a car.

"If I was in a car would someone have been cited, said Wormley? “I've ridden my bike through that intersection hundreds of times and there's plenty of room for cars to stay out of that lane and turn."

Wormley says there is growing concern in the cycling community that drivers are putting them in danger and that police aren't taking the threat seriously or citing drivers properly.
