Cyclist injured in PTC cart collision

A young golf cart driver has been cited for a crash that injured a cyclist on McIntosh Trail near Huddleston Elementary in Peachtree City Sunday afternoon, police said.

The driver, who was 15, was on the crosswalk and pulled into the path of the bike around 5:30 p.m., according to Peachtree City Police Lt. Mark Brown.

The cyclist, identified as Amy Hill of Sharpsburg, was injured and taken to a hospital for treatment, police said.

Police are not releasing the name of the driver, but she was cited for failure to yield while entering the roadway and for violating a restriction on 15-year-old drivers that limits them to transporting only one other non-family member on their golf cart, police said.
