Bicycle Accident Injured Two Young Boys
A bicycle accident injured two young boys when an 18-year old driving a pickup swerved to avoid hitting an object in the roadway and ended up hitting the young boys. One boy was seriously injured from the accident. The other suffered minor injuries. It is unclear if the bicyclist with minor injuries was hit by the pickup truck or struck by the other bicyclist. The sheriff’s office says the driver of the pickup stopped after the bicycle accident to assist the injured boys and is also cooperating with police. The following are some bicycle riding safety tips for young children to help them avoid a bicycle accident.
Bicycle Riding Tips for Young Children
Riding in the street is the safest place for a bicyclist. However, children under the age of 10 are better off riding on the sidewalk. Children under 10 are not mature enough to make difficult decisions necessary to safely ride in the street. The following are some tips to teach children so they can avoid a bicycle accident.
- Watch for vehicles coming out or turning into driveways.
- Stop at corners of sidewalks and streets to look for cars.
- Before crossing a street, make eye contact for any drivers who may stop for you.
- Always enter a street at a corner not between parked cars.
- Alert pedestrians on the sidewalk that you are near by saying, “Excuse me,” or “Passing on your left.” You could also use a bell or horn to alert others.
- Always wear a bicycle helmet that fits properly.
- Check the equipment of your bicycle. Be sure the tires are properly inflated, the brakes are working and your bike seat is adjusted correctly for comfort.
