On Tuesday, July 16, 2013 just before 5 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies responded to a vehicle/bicycle collision on Evergreen Road at 28th Avenue in Spokane Valley.
According to the driver of the vehicle involved, as well as witnesses, the 10-year-old bicyclist was riding southbound on the west shoulder of Evergreen approaching 28th Avenue. Suddenly, he crossed into the southbound lane in front of the 2001 Ford Escape
as he tried to cross Evergreen. The driver of the Escape tried to slow and avoid colliding with the juvenile, but was unsuccessful.
The juvenile was transported to a local hospital with reported minor injuries.
The driver of the vehicle involved was not cited.
With summer in full swing, please take a minute to remind little ones to be safe while they’re out enjoying the summer and to always look both ways before crossing the street.
