Man in critical condition after motorcycle crash

An Augusta man is in critical condition after a motorcycle crash Monday afternoon.

Richmond County sheriff’s deputies said Andre Harris, 35, was riding a motorcycle south on Wheeless Road when a 1997 Mercury Villager traveling northbound turned in front of him on Milledgeville Road, causing Harris to strike the side of the vehicle.

Harris, who was on a 2007 Suzuki GSXR 600, was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital with severe head trauma. After the crash, deputies learned that the motorcycle had been reported stolen in Richmond County in 2011.

The driver of the Mercury was identified as 47-year-old Sheila McGruder. Police said she was taken to a hospital after suffering a seizure at the scene.

McGruder faces charges of failure to yield and driving with a suspended license.
