AUGUSTA, GA--An accident sends one person to the MCG Friday night and investigators are looking to find the driver who hit him.

Police tell News 12 a car pulled out in front of a motorcyclist, causing him to hit the car. Police say he was thrown about 25 feet in the air over the car. His helmet was knocked off.

This all happened on Wrightsboro Road and Valley Park Drive around 6:30 Friday night.
