A vehicle struck a 17-year-old Delta High School student on the morning of Friday, Sept. 30 at approximately 8 a.m.

According to Utah Highway Patrolman Alan Pedersen, the student was traveling northbound on 100 West. The cyclist failed to stop at the stop sign on Main Street.

By the time she entered the right hand travel lane, an eastbound car stopped abruptly to avoid colliding with her. A pickup truck, driven by a 16-year old student was traveling in the number one eastbound lane. The driver traveled past the first vehicle just as the cyclist was passing the stopped car in front of the pickup truck, colliding.

The 17-year-old cyclist was taken by ambulance to the Delta Community Medical Center. She was flown via LifeFlight to Primary Children’s Hospital as a precaution. According to Pedersen her injuries were not life threatening.

No charges will be filed in this incident.
