A 14-year-old girl was seriously injured and airlifted to Harborview Medical Center
after she was struck by a pickup truck while riding her bicycle on November 10, 2008. She was riding along Clear Creek Road just outside of Poulsbo
, Washington when she apparently made a sudden turn across the street to head onto Lakeness Road.
The driver of a Dodge Ram truck was unable to swerve in time and struck the girl with his right front fender according to the Kitsap County Sheriff's Department
. Unfortunately the girl was not wearing a safety helmet which could have reduced the severity of her injuries.
