Two Boys on Bikes Struck by Cars in Georgetown

Two young boys on bicycles were injured Monday afternoon in two separate collisions at the same Georgetown intersection.

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.

The first child—an eight-year-old boy—was struck as he rode across Airport Way S. The boy suffered minor scrapes, but was not seriously injured.

The second boy, a 12-year-old, witnessed the collision and began riding across Airport Way S. to aid his young friend. As the 12-year-old crossed the street, he, too, was struck by a second car.  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 are interviewing both drivers about the two collisions, and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the collision to call 911 or 625-5011. So far, police do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in either collision.
