KENNEWICK, Wash-- A 17-year-old Kennewick teen is recovering tonight after getting hit by a car while riding a bike.
It happened around eleven this morning at the corner of Tenth and Dayton, right next to Kennewick General Hospital.
Officers say the car was at a stop sign when the bicyclist darted in front. Police are using this as a reminder to know your responsibility on the road.
"The important thing for bicyclists to realize is if you're on a sidewalk, you have to follow the same rules as a pedestrian," says sergeant Ken Lattin with the Kennewick Police. "If you're on the street, then you follow the same rules as a car."
The teen has minor injuries to his leg. He was taken to KGH then released shortly after. No word yet on any possible charges.
