SAN DIEGO, CA — An 11-year-old boy was sent to the hospital Thursday evening after being hit by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in east San Diego, according to ABC10 News.
The incident took place on the 1300 block of Woodrow Avenue, in the city’s Jamacha-Lomita neighborhood, shortly before 5:30 p.m.
An early investigation by the San Diego Police Department indicates the child was riding a bike when he crossed the northbound lane and traveled onto the east sidewalk. He then maneuvered back and left the sidewalk in a “westerly” direction. As the child cyclist entered the northbound lane from the sidewalk, he was hit by a northbound Hyundai Elantra driven by a 37-year-old woman.
The boy was transported to an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, including fractures to his left femur and tibia.
Authorities said the female driver, who remained at the scene after the crash, was not reported hurt.
An investigation remains in progress, but impairment is not believed to be a factor in the event.
