Florida woman bicycling across Georgia dies in wreck
SAVANNAH, Georgia (AP) – Police say a 61-year-old Florida woman participating in a group bicycle ride across Georgia was killed after being run over by a dump truck.
Savannah-Chatham police spokeswoman Eunicia Baker says Judy Grossman was participating in a Bike Ride Across Georgia tour when wreck occurred Saturday. Baker says the front tire of Grossman’s bicycle went into a separation in the concrete while 32-year-old Alexis Montero Corvea was driving the dump truck and tried to pass the group of bicyclists.
As a result, Baker says Grossman fell in front of the dump truck’s rear tires and was run over.
Grossman was taken to Memorial University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
No other injuries were reported.
The wreck remains under investigation.
