BALDWIN COUNTY, Ga. - A Georgia Military College student was killed Monday morning after his bicycle hit a Georgia College and State University bus, authorities said.
Just before 10:15 a.m., 21-year-old Logan Jones of Milledgeville was traveling east on the sidewalk next to Hancock Street, Georgia State Patrol said in a news release. The bus was also traveling east on the street and was approaching the intersection with Clark Street while the traffic light was green.
The bus made a right turn onto Clark Street, and Jones’ bicycle didn’t stop, hitting the passenger side of the bus, the release said. Jones fell off the bike and was struck by the rear wheels of the bus.
Jones was taken to Navicent Health Hospital in Macon, where he later died, the release said.
GMC released a statement on Facebook regarding Jones’ death that said:
“Georgia Military College is devastated by the passing of our Junior College student, Logan Jones.
