5-year-old boy injured after his bike hits car


A 5-year-old boy who was riding a small bicycle in the street was flown to the Children's National Medical Center in Washington after his bike collided with an automobile near his home about noon yesterday.

Bradley Dannoy of the 200 block of Stacy Lee Drive was riding downhill on westbound Stacy Lee Drive when he went into the intersection at Wampler Lane and struck a northbound auto driven by Nicholas L. Zito, 50, of Westminster.

Mr. Zito, who said he had never had an accident before, said he was thankful that he was driving about 10 mph.

He said he saw the boy thrown from his bicycle onto the hood of the car and then to the street.

Mr. Zito was not charged in the accident, police said.

The boy was treated by the medic crew of the Westminster ambulance and taken to the Washington hospital by state police MedEvac. The Johns Hopkins Children's Center could not accept any patients via helicopter at the time, medics said.

A hospital spokeswoman said she was not able to give a condition report because the injured boy was still receiving a CT scan yesterday evening.

The boy was conscious at the accident site.
