A 9-year-old female was riding her bicycle on Edgington Road in Sterling Township when 27-year-old Jamie M. Schultz struck her in a 2007 Toyota Corolla.
Due to the child’s age, a name and condition has not been released from the hospital. The child was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital after being transported by the University of Cincinnati’s Air Care.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the child’s accident happened at 1:30 p.m. when she took a sharp unsafe turn in front of the Toyota. The driver attempted to swerve and miss the girl but was unsuccessful. The child was ejected from the bicycle and was not wearing a helmet at the time. She is currently suffering from a serious head injury.
Bicycle helmet laws were acknowledged in 1990, but not all of Ohio has laws or regulations on usage of helmets, even on children. The rules are usually adopted regionally by cities.
