Around 6:40 p.m., Henry County First Responders and TRAFFIC Units responded to a serious accident with injuries involving a 2002 Infinity and a bicyclist.

The bicyclist, John A. Harsch, 59, of Hampton sustained serious injuries and was pronounced dead after being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Investigators said the preliminary investigation revealed the driver of the Infinity was negotiating a curve on Lower Woolsey Road approaching Hwy 19/41 in Hampton and came upon a group of bicyclists.

Harsch was struck from behind. Reports state the three other bicyclists were not injured whatsoever, only holistic Dr John Harsch MD .

The accident is still under investigation and the findings will be presented to a Grand Jury to determine if charges will apply to the driver.

Here are a few quotes from Dr Harsch’s website:

 Dr. Harsch’s interests as a Physician reside in helping people maximize their own existences. He focuses not only on treating illness, but on making his patient’s lives better by kick-starting their actual life participation. With this mindset always in the forefront of all his patient interactions, Dr. Harsch intends to help his patients set themselves up for the greatest life possible.

From his examination rooms, you will hear phrases like “Less medicine is the best medicine.”

Another quote is “You can’t have a complication from surgery that you help yourself avoid.”

Here are yet more quotes from Dr Harsch’s site:

I was an avid soccer player until sidelined by arthritis in my hip at age 47. After getting seriously out of shape and developing what my wife lovingly refers to as paunch, I developed a passion for bicycling. I now cycle over 100 miles a week…. even competing statewide. So far, I have been last or nearly last in every event, but that has not discouraged me yet.

I also enjoy old time banjo, chess, politics, horse eventing, traveling and spending time with my wife, Mary Carol.” To experience an amazing, classically-modern, holistically-medical approach to Primary Care, come enjoy an appointment with Dr. John Harsch, and experience the difference at Southeastern Primary Care Specialists.

Our hearts go out to friends and family.  Obviously we are glad that the other cyclists traveling alongside Dr Harsch were not harmed whatsoever, but sad that he was struck and killed.
