A 10 year old Peoria boy was in serious condition yesterday afternoon after being struck by a pickup truck while riding his bicycle on a residential road, according to The Peoria Journal Star. The incident occurred around 3:35 p.m. yesterday in the 800 North of North Dechman Avenue in Peoria. The boy was reportedly hit while attempting to cross the narrow street after exiting an alley, according to the Journal Star. His injuries are apparently not life threatening, though a "chunk of skin near the boy's lip was missing and his face was covered in blood from a gash on his head," noted the Journal Star.
Police are still investigating the matter. It is not clear how the crash occurred.
