Police did not release the name of the youth or the driver of the car.
The boy was riding his bicycle at about 10:39 p.m. on 44th Street, east of Eighth Avenue, when he was struck by a car driven by a 29-year-old Wyoming man. An ambulance transported the boy to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids.
The boy was riding near the center turn lane in the five-lane road, according to Sgt. Jay Douglas of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. He was not wearing a helmet.
The driver stopped to give aid and is cooperating with police, Douglas said. The driver of the car was not injured.
