14-Year-Old Boy Hit by Car While Riding Bike in Worcester

Thursday, April 06, 2017

 

A 14-year-old boy was hit by a car while riding his bike in the area of Pleasant street on Tuesday night. 

 

 At this time, the driver of the Maxima is cooperating with the investigation and it appears that the accident was unavoidable.

The Incident 

On Tuesday, April 04, at approximately 8:00 p.m. Worcester Police responded to the area of 365 Pleasant Street for a report of a 14-year-old boy who had been struck by a car while riding his bicycle. Officers were told that the driver was still on scene along with a witness who was rendering first aid to the victim.

Paramedics responded to the scene and evaluated the victim before taking him to a local hospital. The boy suffered from a broken leg, a broken ankle, and head and back pain. His injuries are not expected to be life-threatening.

Police were able to speak with witnesses in the area who had seen the accident. The initial investigation revealed that the 14-year-old was riding his bike along with two other young men on Russell Street, heading north towards Pleasant. The men on bicycles traveled through the stop sign at Russell and Pleasant Streets without stopping, driving directly into Pleasant Street into oncoming traffic. A Nissan Maxima was traveling West on Pleasant Street at this time, and was unable to avoid hitting the 14-year-old who had rode out in front of the car.
