Flight for Life takes boy to hospital after bicycle accident

| May 20, 2013 | Bicycle Accidents

Twin Lakes dispatchers sent emergency response personnel to the scene of an accident involving an 11-year-old boy. Once they arrived, the Twin Lakes Fire Department was mobilized to set up a place for Flight for Life to land. Within hours of the boy’s bicycle accident, he was on his way to a Wisconsin children’s hospital to be treated for injuries.

Once the boy was safely on his way to receive medical care, police were able to investigate the accident. Preliminary reports indicate that the boy had been riding his bicycle along a neighborhood sidewalk. They boy fell off of his bike, and when he did, he fell into the street. A 23-foot boat and trailer being towed by a vehicle happened to be there when the boy fell and hit him.

Twin Lakes police and the Wisconsin State Patrol conducted an accident reconstruction in the hours after the accident. It was later reported that the boy had suffered some internal injuries and broke some bones, but that none of those injuries were considered to be life-threatening. The investigation is ongoing.

The boy’s current condition is not known. The investigation into this unfortunate bicycle accident is not yet complete. It is unknown whether any charges will be filed against the driver of the vehicle that was towing the boat. Under our state law, the family of the young boy may also file a personal injury claim against the driver, and if successful, they may be reimbursed the out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.
