The Glynn County Sheriff’s Office arrested Barry Patrick Young on Wednesday after a hit-and-run in Brunswick in May. Georgia State Patrol said Young hit motorcyclist Joshua Brothers, who is also a Jesup firefighter, sending him to the hospital with serious injuries. Brothers served in the military at Fort Stewart in Hinesville, before joining the Jesup Fire Department. “Young man has outstanding character and loves to serve his community. Unfortunately, one week after achieving his EMT certification,” said William Miller, with the Jesup Fire Department. According to GSP reports, Brothers was riding his motorcycle north on State Route 303 in Brunswick around 8:30 p.m. on May 28. That’s when investigators say Young hit Brothers while turning left onto the highway, sending Brothers into a woodline. GSP says Young didn’t stop.
