An accident involving an 8 year old girl on a bicycle occurred in Pleasantville at approximately 3:30 PM Sunday. Pleasantville Police Chief Joe Mrstik tells KNIA/KRLS News that a vehicle was traveling westbound on Jasper Street, when the girl ran a stop sign and struck the side of the vehicle. The girl, who wasn’t wearing a helmet, was transported to a local hospital with abrasions. “We were very lucky,” says Mrstyk. He reminds bicyclists that they need to obey all traffic laws, and urges all bicyclists, especially children, to wear helmets.
