Waycross police are asking for help in locating a log truck and trailer that was involved in a traffic accident Wednesday morning on Plant Avenue in which a bicyclist was injured, said Waycross Police Major Chris Tatum.
Injured was Timothy Wallace, 54, of 707 Brunel St., who was exiting a parking lot when his bike struck the right rear axle of the log truck trailer, which was empty, and was knocked up into the air off the bicycle, Tatum said.
“He had injuries to his right arm and right hip,” Tatum said. “He was unresponsive when officers first arrived on the scene but regained consciousness while he was being treated by EMTs.”
Wallace was flown by helicopter to UF Jacksonville hospital for treatment of his injuries, he said.
Tatum did not know his medical status this morning.
“We believe that the driver of the log truck may not know the trailer was struck by the bicycle or that his vehicle was even involved in an accident,” said Tatum. “We need the community’s help in identifying and locating the log truck involved.”
Said Tatum: “At 9:43 Wednesday morning, Waycross Police were dispatched to an accident between a bicyclist and an unloaded log truck that occurred at 2401½ Plant Ave. The bicyclist was riding out of the parking lot exit of George’s Liquors located between the Shell convenience store and Dunkin’ Doughnuts. As the bicyclist entered the road he drove into the rear tandem wheels of the empty log trailer. The empty trailer was being pulled by a tractor with a white cab.”
Witnesses could not give a name or other identifiable markings for the trucking company, Tatum said. The tractor trailer was driving westbound from the direction of Blackshear toward Waycross on Plant Avenue in the curb lane, he said.
Waycross Police are asking the citizens that were in the area of Plant Avenue and Pinehurst Drive Wednesday around 9:43 a.m. that may have seen the accident or have any information on the log truck to assist them with identifying the log truck that was involved in the accident, he said. 
Some people have called in with information that the police have checked but “nothing has panned out yet,” Tatum said this morning.
Information may be reported to the Waycross Police Department at 287-2921.
