A twelve year old boy was hit by a car while riding his pocket bike on the street where he lives. No information whether he was wearing a helmet was given, but let this serve as a reminder to everyone that you should always ride responsibly.
It isn’t wise to ride your pocket rocket on any street, as tempting as it may be. I know most of you do ride in the street, and that won’t change just by reading a post on the internet, but seriously consider the consequences of getting into a collission with car.
As for the parents of the boy, shame on them. I don’t know if they were watching hom or not, but it doesn’t matter. Police said neither excessive speed or alcohol was involved in the crash, therefore we have no choice but to assume the driver simply did not see the boy on his mini bike. The next car you pull out in front of may not see you either. Remember that.
