A 12-year-old Riverside girl was injured after she reportedly rode her bicycle into the side of a minivan as she attempted to cross Woodside Road from Hauser Junior High School at dismissal time Tuesday afternoon.
Deputy Police Chief John Krull said the department received several 911 calls at 3:35 p.m.
“Evidently the light changed from red to green and traffic proceeded [north],” Krull said. “It looks to me like she didn’t judge the timing too well.”
The bicycle hit the front quarter panel of a 1994 Ford van driven by a 38-year-old North Riverside woman. The girl was taken to Loyola University Medical Center to treat a leg injury. Police Chief Thomas Weitzel described the injury as “not serious.”
Police issued no tickets, determining the driver of the van was not at fault after talking with the driver and witnesses at the scene.
