Boy's condition 'stable' following bike crash

A 14-year-old Salmon Arm boy was in serious but stable condition Thursday morning after a bicycle accident Wednesday afternoon.

Police report that the boy was riding his bike down the steep hill on 10th Avenue SE – sometimes called Shoemaker Hill – near Second Avenue when he lost control of his bike and fell off. He fell into the oncoming lane and collided with a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction. The boy suffered trauma to his head and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Police say he was not wearing a helmet.

"Police information is that the youth remains in serious but stable condition," stated a news release issued at 8 a.m. Thursday.
