An administrator at a private high school in Tennessee is accused of striking a bicyclist with his SUV in a federal park and then driving off. The incident was caught on video by the victim’s friend.
Marshall Grant Neely III, 58, of Franklin, was arrested Sunday night by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office on several charges, including felony reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to immediately notify of accident and failure to render aid, authorities say.
Neely told Police a “man and a woman were standing in the road & threw the bicycle at his car.”
“The Natchez Trace Parkway is a designated bicycle route, and bicycle traffic increases dramatically on the weekends and holidays. In Mississippi and Tennessee, bicyclists are allowed to use the full lane of traffic to ride in when necessary,” Acting Chief Ranger Calvin Farmer said in a statement.
