A young Lincoln boy has been critically injured after his bike was struck by a pick-up as he went to school this morning.
Lincoln Police Department spokeswoman Katie Flood says the 11-year-old boy was riding his bicycle to school when a pick-up ran over him.
“The driver left the scene of the accident,” Flood tells reporters, but witnesses told police officers where the truck went. Officers pulled the truck over not far from the scene of the accident. “He is currently in custody and officers are investigating whether he was impaired at the time of the accident.”
Flood says the bike was still wedged underneath the truck when officers pulled it over.
The boy has been hospitalized with serious injuries.
