serious bicycle accident
A New Smyrna boy is hospitalized in critical condition after he was struck by a car while riding his bike in New Smyrna Beach. Accident investigators report that the 11-year-old was riding westbound on Paige Avenue near the intersection with Corbin Park Road when he was struck by a 2002 Honda Civic driven by a 19-year-old New Smyrna Beach woman. They report that the woman was traveling south on Corbin Park Road when she collided with the boy as she traveled through the intersection. Paige Avenue has a stop sign at the intersection but Corbin Park Road does not. At this point in their investigation, Florida Highway Patrol troopers told reporters that they did not yet know whether or not the boy had stopped at the stop sign before entering the intersection.
