Two kids on bikes were struck by vehicles in separate incidents in the past week.
A 6-year-old girl was pushed 44 feet after a pickup driven by 28-year-old Jordan Glasser, of Bismarck, struck her at 8:12 a.m. Monday, Bismarck Police Sgt. Mark Buschena said.
He said the girl’s brother was riding a bike in front of her and her mother was on a bike behind her as she crossed Century Avenue on 19th Street on the east side of the intersection. Glass was southbound on 19th Street, turned to go east on Century Avenue and struck the girl.
The girl went under the pickup but had only minor injuries, Buschena said. He said her bike helmet was destroyed, and she had an injury to her left ear. She was taken to Sanford Medical Center by ambulance and treated for scrapes, cuts and bruises.
The report will be sent to the city attorney’s office for review, Buschena said.
A 13-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle on Saturday in Mandan, police there said. Robert Floer, of Bismarck, struck the boy when the boy failed to yield at a no-walk signal at the intersection of Sixth Avenue Southeast and Third Street Southeast. The boy, from Mandan, was knocked to the ground but did not complain of any injuries, police said. No citations were issued in the case.
