A 13-year-old Berkeley resident was struck by a car Wednesday night at the 1300 block of Ashby Avenue, just west of Mabel Street.
The boy, whose name is being withheld by police because of his age, was riding his bike eastbound on Ashby on the south sidewalk.
While crossing the street through stopped traffic, the boy was struck by a westbound car moving 15 mph to 20 mph, police said. The boy was riding with two friends, both who crossed safely. The cyclist was taken to Children’s Hospital in Oakland where he was treated for a broken rib, air in his chest, an abrasion and lacerations to his neck and left wrist.
The police department would not give the driver’s name and would not say whether any arrests were made. Police would not say if the cyclist was wearing a helmet.
