Decatur Police have released the accident report about a cyclist struck by a car on Tuesday, May 6.

According to the report, Laura Quade, 26, was stopped at the westbound inside lane of West Ponce de Leon Avenue at the Water Street intersection. She was preparing to turn left.  A Cadillac driven by Edward Tamas, 87, was also traveling westbound and hit the rear of Quade’s bicycle.

The report says Quade was “vaulted” onto Tamas’ Cadillac, causing damage to the front of the car and the windshield. Quade was transported to the hospital and Tamas was cited for following too closely, the report says. Decatur Police said there are no other charges pending against him.

Attempts to reach Tamas have been unsuccessful. Quade’s father, Preston Quade, said his daughter’s condition is improving.

“We expect a full recovery,” he said.
