Fatal hit & run accident

for an 18-wheel truck involved in a fatal hit-andrun incident here last week.

David McLendon, 51, of 207 N. Church St., was apparently walking his bike along the side of MLK Blvd. Thursday night when he was struck by a truck near the intersection at North Main Street. The truck continued east through the traffic light at North Main without stopping. The bicycle was not damaged in the collision.

Authorities have been able to locate only one witness to the accident. He described the east bound truck as being an 18-wheeler with a white cab and an enclosed trailer.

Anyone who may have seen anything in the area of the accident that night which may led to the truck is asked to contact authorities at 229-723-3158.
