“Basically, they left my husband to die on the side of the road,” Carrie Liner told WLBB Radio on Tuesday.
Liner‘s husband, 46-year old John Floyd Ivan Pulliam was traveling south on Georgia 1 on his 2005 Suzuki when a witness says the truck made a left turn in front of the motorcycle, causing the bike to strike the truck and eject Pulliam.
The truck reportedly stopped momentarily and then left the scene.
“My husband is a strong person,” Liner said. “And there are still good people out there. A good Samaritan put a belt around my husband’s leg and saved his life (after the accident).”
Liner says unfortunately her husband’s leg was left severely broken and she had to make the decision Tuesday to allow doctors to amputate his leg.
Liner says her husband is a roofer and the family does not have insurance. She says her church is expected to organize a Boston-Butt sale to help raise money for the family’s medical needs.
Georgia State Patrol Public Information Officer Gordy Wright requested Monday that anyone with information on a blue Chevrolet full-bodied pick-up truck which would likely have damage to the right front portion of the truck, to contact the GSP office.
