Two bicycle accidents occur over two days in Waynesboro

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Two bicycle accidents have occurred in two days in the Borough of Waynesboro, the second of which sent a 10-year-old to the hospital Tuesday evening.

The Waynesboro boy had bruises on his face and complained of arm pain as he was loaded into the ambulance after the 6:10 p.m. accident.

"In a preliminary investigation, I believe the boy hit the right front fender above the wheel well," Waynesboro police Cpl. Kurt Wagaman said.

The gray Ford Edge pickup truck stopped just feet from where the boy landed in the 400 block of West Eighth Street. The truck was westbound at the time of the accident.

"Speed was not involved in the accident," Wagaman said.

Although there were no adult witnesses to the crash, it appeared the boy entered the roadway midblock from the sidewalk or adjacent driveway on the north side of the street, Wagaman said.

On Monday, a boy on a bicycle was hit shortly before 3 p.m. near the intersection of Philadelphia Avenue and West Second Street. Police said no injuries or vehicle damage were reported in that crash.
