My wife and I live in Smyrna and run on the trail several times a month. My wife was running on Saturday around 1:15 when she was struck by a cyclist from behind and ran over. She was about a mile west of your shop.
She never heard or saw the rider before impact. She was thrown face first on the trail and has several injuries. She has stitches above her eye and her face, ride shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle all are bruised and swollen. She will be out of work for several days.
The cyclist ended up running over her legs and skidded down the trail. He was a white male, wearing cycling apparel including a helmet. The witness stated that he was traveling over 20 miles an hour when she was hit.
Several people saw the incident and several stopped to help. Several witnesses said his face had some scratches from the fall. He wouldn’t share personal information and acted irritated that it had happened. He didn’t hang around after the incident. A gentleman helped my wife walk about a mile to the Floyd road parking lot where I rushed her to ER.
I’m trying to locate the cyclist that caused the incident. Can you recommend a couple of Bike Facebook pages or forums that I can post this information.
Feel free to share or post in your shop. My number is 7702940714.
