A Laurens County doctor was hit and killed while jogging with his wife Sunday  morning.

That's according to Laurens County deputy coroner Nathan Stanley.

He said John Bahouth was struck by a vehicle around 10 a.m. Sunday on Antioch Church Road.

And he died less than an hour later at Fairview Park Hospital, where he worked as a radiologist.

He said the driver stopped and cooperated with police.

Stanley said the Georgia State Patrol is investigating, but all indications are the accident was what he called "a freak accident."

A state patrol news release says the vehicle was driven by Jennifer Lindsey Bryant, 30, of Dexter.

They said the GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating.

Stanley said Bahouh, 58, was a native of Syracuse, N.Y.  and lived in Dexter.
