LEANDER, Texas (KXAN) — A boy riding his bicycle on a sidewalk in Leander was hit by a car Thursday afternoon.
The collision happened at around 4:16 p.m. near the intersection of Lakeline Boulevard and Rimfire.
The 12 year old was taken to the hospital with minor, non-life threatening injuries by Williamson County EMS. Leander police say the driver was cited for failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian on a sidewalk. Officers say the woman driving was leaving an apartment complex and didn’t see the boy as he made his way home from school.
“Just a friendly reminder,” police said, “make sure you are stopping before crossing a sidewalk when exiting a private drive and looking for pedestrians on the sidewalk, not just vehicles on the roadway.”
