Martinez man struck by two vehicles

  • Follow Crime & courts

A Martinez man is in critical condition after being hit by one vehicle and run over by another Sunday morning.

Bradley Kenneth Simons, 22, of High Chaparral Drive, was walking on Old Evans Road near Dent Street when he was struck about 3:36 a.m., Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said.

A passer-by saw Simons face down in the westbound lane and stopped to help. She told deputies that she tried to flag down a four-door Jeep Wrangler, but it ran over Simons and continued heading west on Old Evans Road.

Simons was taken to Georgia Re­gents Medical Center where he was in critical condition Sunday afternoon, spokeswoman Jennifer Scott said.

I would be VERY cautious

I would be VERY cautious about stopping for someone laying in the middle of the road at 3:30 in the morning. It could be a setup for a robbery / carjacking. I doubt that I would run over whatever was laying in the middle of the road though and would stop soon after and call 911. Many people on the road at that time of the day are heading home from bars. Hope the victim survives.

Walking on Old Evans Road @

Walking on Old Evans Road @ 3:36 a.m.

Pretty much sums it up,

But 2 hit and runs. I hope they catch both....

BTW: Was he in the road or on the side on the shoulder and what was he wearing light of DARK clothing?

The second driver probably

The second driver probably didn't even know they ran over a person. Most people, when they run over something in the road at night, don't think "body in the road". They probably thought they ran over a dog or a deer.

Mullikin

When a young woman was struck and killed on Mullikin Rd. a few years back, Columbia County government decided to build a sidewalk along that road. Will they follow suit here?

You have to be joking. You know they will never do something that will solve a problem, not unless they pass a "Run Over A Body Fee".
