The West Liberty Police Department in Iowa is reminding people to be cautious of young bike riders after an incident involving a 6-year-old boy occurred Monday.
The boy, who was not wearing a helmet, rode his bike into the side of a moving truck, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page. A parked vehicle in the driveway obstructed the view of the truck driver involved in the crash.The boy received a few scrapes and likely suffered a concussion.
An officer drew attention to the incident by posting a photo of the boy’s mangled bicycle. The bike’s front wheel was bent and twisted. Police hope by sharing the image, they will encourage drivers and kids to be more attentive.
