A 68-year-old Athens man has died from injuries he suffered last month when a car collided with his bicycle on Prince Avenue, according to Athens-Clarke County police.

Carey Lee Maxey of Vincent Drive was riding a bicycle east on the sidewalk of Prince Avenue on Sept. 22 at about 7:45 a.m. when he left the sidewalk in an apparent attempt to cross the street, and upon entering the roadway the bicycle was struck by a 2022 Hyundai Kona that was traveling east on Prince Avenue in the inside lane, police said.

Maxey, who police said not wearing a helmet and failed to yield to the vehicle, was transported to the hospital by EMS.

Police said they were notified on Friday that he had succumbed to his injuries.
