A Jones County Sheriff's Department captain received minor injuries Friday night when the patrol motorcycle he was riding was involved in an accident with a motorist who fled the scene. Captain Jerry Hutcheson sustained bruised ribs and a dislocated finger when he slid his new patrol bike on the highway to avoid hitting a car which allegedly pulled out in front of him.
The accident happened on Highway 11 in Sandersville around 5:30 p.m. The car was dark-colored, possibly a Nissan Altima, and it left the scene.
The Jones County Sheriff's Department is hoping you can help identify the driver of that car.
