Car drivers need to be aware of activity on the sidewalk before making their left hand turn.

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

A young girl was critically injuried in an accident in Kitchener involiving a car and a bicycle.  The young girl was riding her bicycle on the sidewalk when a car turned into a driveway and hit the girl bicyclist.  The car driver did not see the girl riding her bicycle on the sidewalk.  It is very important that car drivers take their time when making a left hand turn to check the sidewalk for pedestrians and bicyclists.  Often young children will ride their bicycles on the sidewalk as it is considered more safe than riding the bike on the road in many instances.  The young Kitchener girl is in critical condition.  She was brought to Grand River Hospital in Kitchener and then air lifted to Hamilton General Hospital due to the severity of her injuries.  The young girl was struck by a van and was found under the van.  The van driver did not see the girl riding her bicycle at the time of the accident.  The Waterloo Regional Police are continuing their investigation into the car bicycle accident.
