A nine-year-old boy is struggling for his life after being hit by a car while riding his bike in south Fulton County.
The boy was riding his bicycle along Britley Terrace in the Old National East subdivision near College Park around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, 2010. Fulton County police say that the child suddenly darted in front of a Chrysler Sebring.
Police are not sure how fast the driver was going, but the speed limit in the area is 35 m.p.h. No charges have been filed against the driver, but the accident is still under investigation.
The boy was not breathing when emergency crews arrived. He was given CPR and was flown by helicopter to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston where he remains on life support.
The Law Offices of Shane Smith offer our best wishes to the family.
