Bicyclist Hit By Truck

A 14-year-old Coeur d'Alene boy was hurt when he collided with a car while riding his bike on Government Way yesterday.

According to the Idaho State Police, the boy was in the northbound lanes near Hanley Avenue when he collided with a pickup that was exiting a driveway onto Government Way. Because of that, the truck was moving very slowly. The bicylist was not wearing a helmet. He was taken to Kootenai Medical Center for treatment. It's not clear what his condition is this morning, or if the driver will face charges.
