A Midway man was killed Friday night as he was riding a bike on Isle of Wight Road.
Lynn Carlton Jack, 37, was struck by a 1994 Cadillac Deville driven by Marjorie Myers, 80, also of Midway, about 8:40 p.m. on the road near Jones Creek Park, according to a report filed by GSP Trooper Robert Barry.
According to the report, Jack was crossing the road to speak with Pamela Newsome who was sitting near the road.
Myers reported that when she spotted Jack she tried to avoid hitting him, but did not have time. She struck Jack and the bike, hurling them 60 feet before it landed. Myers continued to travel 100 feet before she was able to stop.
Jack was flown by helicopter ambulance to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah where he was later pronounced dead.
The accident is under investigation.
