The girl was hit by the car around 8:30 a.m. at Hope Street and Doyle Avenue, according to Lindsay Lague, a spokesperson for the police department. She was riding a rented Jump Bike, Lague said.
Lague said the girl suffered “minor injuries to her leg” and was transported to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
This incident happened on the first day of a school bus drivers strike in the City of Providence.
I think your supposed to be 18-years-old to rent a JUMP Bike. We may be hearing more about this later.
Also, the City has been reluctant to approve bike lanes on Hope Street.
