A pedestrian suffered broken bones Thursday afternoon after being hit by a semitrailer on Atlanta Highway in the Chicopee Mill area, authorities said.
About 3:30 p.m., passers-by reported a male pedestrian had jumped in front of a semitrailer, said Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes.
Cpl. Dallas Vanscoten of the Georgia State Patrol said Stephen Bray, 23, of Winterville was struck by the side of a southbound Peterbilt tractor-trailer and was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where he is under psychiatric treatment.
The truck was driven by Nicholas Lybarger of Richmond, Texas, who will not be charged, Vanscoten said.
