Two young bicyclists were struck by vehicles in two separate incidents early Monday evening in Baltimore County, according to police.
In one case, a vehicle struck a 9-year-old boy in the 7600 block of Cedar Road in Dundalk, a few blocks from the North Point Plaza Shopping Center. The owner of the vehicle called police at about 5:30 p.m. to report the incident. Police said that the boy was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital with an ankle injury.
Less than two hours later, police responded to a report of a juvenile bicyclist struck by a blue SUV in the 100 block of Back River Neck Road in Essex, just a few blocks from Mars Estates Elementary School. The vehicle in question remained at the scene, and the bicyclist was taken to Franklin Square Hospital Center.
