Pedestrian Hit and Seriously Injured

The Second Avenue Bridge north of Broad Street in downtown Rome was blocked for a time Thursday afternoon after a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle.

According to Rome Police, the pedestrian was thrown off the bridge and onto the path below after being hit by the northbound vehicle near Safe Lock and Kay.

The pedestrian was transported to Atrium Health Floyd with what were believed to be serious injuries.

Police say the vehicle left the road twice, and they are looking into the possibility that the driver had some sort of medical emergency.
