FAIR LAWN, N.J. – A 78-year-old driver received a summons after hitting a 15-year-old boy on a bicycle Tuesday night in Fair Lawn, police said.
The Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance Corps took the borough boy to The Valley Hospital after he was struck by the 1998 Nissan Maxima on River Road at 6:45 p.m., Sgt. Brian Metzler said.
A CT scan and several X-rays were taken, all of which proved negative, the boy's mother, JoAnn Licchi Dutzar, told Daily Voice on Wednesday.
"He has two gashes on his head -- one on top and the other on the back of his head," she said. "He has a severely bruised and sprained right ankle, his left knee is swollen but not broken and he has road rash from head to toe."
The driver, who was making a right from Berdan Avenue, received a summons for failure to yield the right of way and careless driving, Metzler said.
Witnesses said the driver, who also lives in the borough, continued on before being stopped at a nearby convenience store. They also pointed out a "No Turn On Red" sign at the light where the driver turned.
