A 13-year-old girl is being treated for serious injuries after a Sunday evening bicycle-automobile accident—the second such accident in less than a week.

Boise Police say the girl was not wearing a helmet when her bicycle was struck by a car at the intersection of West Ustick Road and Jullion Street. Eyewitnesses said the the bicyclist was crossing the street with two other children who were walking.

Following the accident, the passenger side windshield of the automobile had been smashed in. A pink bicycle was nearby.

On April 14, a 5-year-old boy was seriously injured when his bicycle was hit by a large construction truck in the eastbound lane of Fairview Avenue at North McKinney Lane.

While the investigations continue into both accidents, Boise Police say the drivers of the two vehicles have been cooperative in trying to determine the exact circumstances of the crashes.
