Local Teacher Hopes to Raise Awareness for Fellow Bike Riders
DUBLIN (Tara Morgan) -- A local teacher is hoping to raise awareness for drivers about sharing the road with cyclists after she was nearly killed in a hit and run.
Susie Thompson is also friend with Robert Lennon who died in a hit and run last weekend.
Thompson says she was clipped by a dump truck back on September 5th while riding her bike on Jerome Road.
"I could feel him coming toward me and he hit me about right here and sped off," said Thompson.
She's now recovering, but in the meantime sending a stern message to drivers.
"Bikers we have the right to be on the road also and I think in this day of age people are so busy either on their cell phones texting which they shouldn't be doing anyways they're not paying attention to what's going on," said Thompson.
Thompson says Union County Sheriff's office is investigating her case.
