Watch out for bikes on the road
By Chuck Kajer
While driving through New Prague Monday I saw a truly horrifying sight.
As I turned south onto Highway 21, I saw an SUV pull slowly out of the alley behind the old motel and hit a youngster on his bicycle. The young man - about 12 years old - flew over the handlebars and landed on the ground.
I quickly pulled over to the side of the road and grabbed for my phone. The driver had a terrified look on her face and jumped out of the vehicle to see if the kid was OK.
