Teen injured in vehicle-bicycle accident

A 14 year old Gering boy was taken to Regional West Medical Center Thursday evening after he was involved in a vehicle-bicycle accident at the intersection of 17th and M Street in Gering.

Gering Police tell KNEB News the youth had injuries his head and chest, but he is not listed in the hospital directory.

Police say the teen was southbound on 17th Street when he was struck by an eastbound pickup driven by 53 year old Dean Bealer of Scottsbluff. Police say the boy landed in the street and walked to a nearby yard, where he was eventually treated before being taken to the hospital.

The only traffic signs at the intersection were north and south bound stop signs. No one was cited by Police.

The accident happened at 6:30 p.m.
