ST. GEORGE —A car struck a boy riding his bicycle at the intersection of 500 South 400 East on Thursday at about 3:30 p.m.
A silver Honda Civic driven by a woman with no passengers was traveling southbound on 400 East and was making a right-hand turn to go westbound on 500 South. The boy riding the bicycle was traveling northbound on 400 East on the sidewalk and as he was crossing the intersection the Honda crashed into the bicycle as it was turning, St. George Police Officer Trevor Woolstenhulme said.
The bicyclist saw the car and thought she was going to stop; “she said she didn’t see him and there’s a collision,” Woolstenhulme said.
Gold Cross Ambulance Service responded but there were no injuries and no real obvious damage, Woolstenhulme said.
Citations were issued, Woolstenhulme said, however he declined to provide details on what the charges were and who was cited.
Kids on bicycles should always get off of their bike and walk across the street whenever they are crossing, he said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.
