2 boys on bikes hit by 2 different cars at same Seattle intersection
SEATTLE — Two boys on bicycles were hit by two different cars at the same Georgetown intersection Monday afternoon, police said.
Officers received multiple reports around 3:30 p.m. that two children had been struck by two different cars at Corson Ave. South and Airport Way South, police said.
The first —an 8-year-old boy—was struck as he rode across Airport Way S. The boy suffered minor scrapes, but was not seriously injured, police said.
The second boy, a 12-year-old, witnessed the collision and began riding across Airport Way S. to aid his friend. As the 12-year-old crossed the street, he, too, was struck by a second car, police said. The 12-year-old was thrown from his bicycle in the collision, leaving him with a possible leg fracture.
The Seattle Fire Department treated the 8-year-old at the scene and transported the 12-year-old to Harborview Medical Center for further evaluation.
Officers were interviewing both drivers about the two collisions and asked that anyone who may have witnessed the collisions to call 911 or 625-5011.
Police said they do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in either collision.
