Monkton boy flown to shock trauma after accident

A 12-year-old Monkton boy was flown to a Baltimore trauma center Tuesday after he was hit by a car while riding a bicycle.

Around 3:55 p.m. William Thomas Moore, 36, of the 4100 block of Old York Road, was driving south on Old York Road, according to the accident report from the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

While Moore was driving in the 4000 block of Old York Road, Kyle Edward Hammerstein, 12, who lives in that block, darted on his bike from a field out into the road, according to the report.

The driver didn't see the boy, who was hidden behind trees and shrubbery before he moved into the road, and the car hit the bicycle, according to the report.

The car swerved across the road in an effort to avoid the boy on the bike.

Kyle was flown by Medevac helicopter to Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore for treatment.
