Police seek driver in bicycle accident

Express Staff Writer

Sun Valley police are trying to find the driver of a "silver SUV" that was struck by a bicycle last week in Elkhorn Village.

Police Chief Cameron Daggett said the accident happened between 3 and 4 p.m. last Thursday on Badeyana Street near the Market at Elkhorn Springs. However, police weren't notified until several hours later. A 10-year-old boy riding the bicycle was not seriously injured.

Daggett said the driver of the SUV stopped to see that the boy was OK, drove him to his mother's home at nearby Indian Springs and then left.

"All we know is what the little 10-year-old shaken boy said, after his mother got home and called us," Daggett said.

The police chief said the incident is a reportable accident and he would like the driver of the vehicle, or anyone who witnessed the collision, to file a report. He said the SUV driver was apparently not at fault.

"I don't intend to charge them," Daggett said. "They helped the kid out. They did 60 percent of what they're supposed to do."
