CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR — A child was hurt Monday morning when their bicycle collided with a vehicle at an intersection in Milwaukie’s Lake Road neighborhood, reports KOIN 6 News.
The incident took place at the corner of 35th Avenue and Southeast Lake Road, just northwest of Wilbur Rowe Middle School. Milwaukie Police responded to the scene at around 9:00 a.m.
An early investigation indicates a vehicle was traveling southbound on 35th Avenue when it stopped at the intersection. The vehicle then moved “very slowly” forward as its driver checked for traffic. At one point, a child on a bike traveled through the crosswalk and collided with the car.
Officials said the driver remained after the crash and helped the young cyclist, who suffered minor injuries. The child’s parents arrived on the scene shortly after.
No charges or citations have been reported.
