The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a traffic collision that occurred just after 3:00 p.m. on Log Cabin Drive and Lafayette Drive.
It was reported that a Yamaha R1 motorcycle, driven by a 45-year-old male of Macon, was traveling south on Log Cabin Drive when it went in the center turn lane. That is when a black in color, possibly a Chrysler 300, turned off of Lafayette Drive to go north onto Log Cabin Drive and struck the Yamaha. The driver of the Yamaha was transported to the Atrium Health Navicent where he was pronounced deceased by staff. The driver of the possible Chrysler fled the scene before deputies arrived. The next of kin has not been notified at this time.
The possible Chrysler has extensive front end damage. The traffic collision is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Bibb Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
