  1. I’m not surprised to read this. Drivers are routinely texting and driving too fast around town. It’s disgusting. Glad to hear this child is okay. Sadly, there will be a next time.

  2. @friedchix, I agree about the bad driving but this news announcement gives no information that implicates the driver of the car. Bicyclists (of any age) must follow the rules of the road, and frankly I cringe at the bad bike riding habits I see in town as much as the bad driving. We simply don’t know what happened given the limited info provided here. If nothing else, it should be a reminder to parents to ensure their kids wear helmets, are highly visible, and to never assume a car sees them. It’s unfortunate that it has to be that way, but that’s the reality.
