67-year-old Judy Mae Petrovsky has been arrested after a hit and run accident left a bicyclist in critical condition on Friday, July 22, 2011. Police allege that Ms. Petrovsky was drunk when she hit a bicyclist in Marietta.
The crash occurred on Roswell Street near Aviation Street shortly after midnight. According to police, Ms. Petrovsky hit the bicyclist and returned to her home in Milton, approximately 20 miles from the accident scene. A family member drove Ms. Petrovsky to the Alpharetta Police Department to turn herself in later that night. The Alpharetta police visited Ms. Petrovsky's home and inspected her car which sustained significant front end damage and lost a rear view mirror. They then notified the Marietta police who made the arrest in connection with the hit and run crash.
The bicyclist who was injured has been identified as Thomas Ringle of Cobb County. Mr. Ringle was taken to Kennestone Hospital and was admitted to the intensive care unit.
Ms. Petrovsky was arrested and charged with DUI and a felony hit and run. She was released from Cobb County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
We extend our best wishes for a quick and complete recovery to Thomas Ringle following this serious Marietta bicycle accident.
