2 young bicyclists struck by cars in Georgetown

Two young friends on bicycles were injured when they were struck by vehicles Monday afternoon in separate collisions at the same Georgetown intersection.

The first accident happened about 3:30 p.m. when an 8-year-old boy was struck by a car as he rode across Airport Way South at Corson Avenue South, police said. The boy suffered minor scrapes but was not seriously injured, according to a police account.

The second boy, 12, saw his friend get hit and was riding across Airport Way South to help when he, too, was struck by a car. Police said the boy was thrown from his bicycle and possibly suffered a broken leg.

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 collisions. So far, officers do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in either collision.
