MERIDEN, Conn. (WFSB) - Police say a 15-year-old was transported by Lifestar after striking a car while on their bike.
Police responded to Oregon Road at the intersection of Brownstone Ridge at 3:15 pm this evening for reports of a car vs. bicyclist.
“Upon arrival, the initial appearance was that a 15-year-old had been traveling down Brownstone Ridge on a bicycle, entered the intersection of Oregon Road, and struck a vehicle,” Police said.
The teenager was transported to CCMC via Lifestar with serious injuries.
David Johnson lives within feet of where the teenager was struck.

Johnson says a few bystanders tried to help the teenager until the ambulance and Lifestar arrived.
“It’s real sad it’s Mother’s Day and the child’s obviously hurt and had to be taken to the hospital,” Johnson added.
