MONTCLAIR, NJ – A young girl on a bike was struck in a minor collision with a vehicle in Montclair on Wednesday afternoon, according to a local news source.
An 11-year-old girl was riding her bike south along the curb of northbound Orange Road when she suddenly veered into the path of an oncoming driver. The driver, a 61-year-old woman, had been aware of the child and slammed on her brakes when the girl entered the travel lane. She came almost completely to a stop but was unable to avoid a minor collision with the girl, who fell off her bike.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they were able to corroborate the woman’s story with other witnesses. At this time no summons have been issued.
The girl was transported to a hospital in Paterson for pain.
