A 16 year old boy was killed after being hit by a truck while riding his bicycle Monday evening. He was riding with his friend on Reed Market Road, near Pettigrew Road when a pickup truck and trailor struck him. A report from the Bulletin states; the driver of the truck put on the brakes because cars were slowing in front of him, but the truck and trailer spun and hit a lava rock fence. That caused the truck to spin further then strike the boy. His friend is said to have narrowly escaped being hit. The investigation was still on going late last night.
