A young bicycle rider escaped with just minor injuries when he collided with a car traveling westbound on 5th Street the afternoon of Friday, May 25. Witnesses told Delta Police Department investigators that two boys were racing down the alley on their bikes; one passed in front of the car but the other struck the side of the vehicle. That bicycle rider was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital for treatment. The accident serves as a reminder to drivers to be extra vigilant now that school is out for the summer — and to young bike riders and pedestrians to be more aware of their surroundings.
