NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — A ninth-grade student who was riding a bike Monday morning to Gulf High School was hit by a car in a crosswalk.

Pasco County Schools spokesperson Linda Cobbe said the male student was alert and talking. His father took him to Morton Plant North Bay for examination.

New Port Richey police spokesperson Shaun Pelt said the boy suffered a possible leg injury. The injury is not considered life-threatening.

Pelt said the student is 15 years old. The crash happened around 7:14 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Madison Street and School Road, Pelt said.

The driver of the Honda CRV was cited for failure to yield, according to Pelt.

The crosswalk is near the same intersection where a teen was airlifted in January after getting hit by a vehicle.
