Child on bike hit by car


A 10-year-old girl was sent to the hospital Monday after she was struck by a car while riding her bike across the street in the City of Cedar Springs.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, the crash occurred at 5:57 p.m. on Monday, November 7, on Muskegon Street, just west of Main Street. The investigation showed that a 10-year-old girl was riding her bicycle northbound across Muskegon Street, when she was struck by a westbound 2010 GMC Pickup, driven by a 51-year-old male from Cedar Springs.

Police said that the girl suffered a broken leg, and was transported by ambulance to DeVos Children’s Hospital. The Cedar Springs Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Police said that alcohol and speed were not factors in the crash, and that the girl was not in the crosswalk, nor was she wearing a helmet.

The crash is still under investigation.
