The first Burbank Police officer on scene discovered that the 10-year old male was not trapped and was actually talking to witnesses and the driver. The incident occurred at 6:06 p.m. when a driver struck the bicyclist when he rode into the path of her auto driving slowly in the 900 block of Maple Street.

The sun is setting much later with daylight savings time and kids are frequently outside playing and riding bikes in many Burbank neighborhoods.

These pictures are a real visual reminder to slow down and use caution when driving in any residential zone.

The boy was transported to Children’s Hospital by Burbank Paramedics with non-life threatening injuries and for precautionary reasons.
