A Columbia County Sheriff’s Office bicycle deputy wasn’t seriously injured Thursday when he was hit by a minivan on Washington Road.
Deputy Kevin Center and his partner were riding bicycles along Washington Road near Lowe’s at about 3 p.m. when they tried to cross Washington Road to respond to a vehicle wreck, according to sheriff’s Capt. Sharif Chochol.
Yasmill Ramirez, 37, of Windmill Lane in Evans, was driving west and didn’t see Center. She hit him with her Toyota minivan.
