A bicyclist man who was struck by a hit-and-run driver Saturday evening on Highway 53 and Brownlee Mountain Road in Gordon County has died from his injuries.
52-year-old Michael Shane Robbins of Plainville was airlifted to Erlanger with serious injuries after his bicycle was struck by what was believed to be a dump truck hauling short logs.
He died from his injuries on Tuesday.
