Teenager Riding Bicycle Injured in Hammonton NJ Auto Accident
A teenage boy was injured after being struck by a car on a roadway in Hammonton, New Jersey. At the time of the auto accident, the victim was riding his bicycle.
The car accident occurred in the afternoon as the boy was riding near the intersection of Central Avenue and Grape Street in the Hammonton NJ neighborhood where he lives.
The driver of the car that hit the victim is a 75-year-old male. At this time, it is unclear what might have caused the accident.
The victim, who is 14 years old, sustained minor physical injuries as a result of the bicycle accident. He was briefly treated at the scene of the accident by emergency medical responders before being taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, NJ. Doctors at the hospital provided additional medical treatment to the victim and later listed him in stable condition.
Hammonton police are currently investigating the motor vehicle accident. Authorities have not yet filed any criminal charges against the driver or cited him for any traffic violations.
Depending on the outcome of the investigation and the precise circumstances that led up to the accident, it is possible that the driver of the car that struck the bicyclist could be subject to a personal injury lawsuit, with the victim and his family potentially seeking damages for medical bills, as well as pain and suffering.
