A 16-year-old boy riding a bike over the San Antonio Road overpass at Highway 101 was injured Sunday afternoon when a car slid out of control on rain-slick roadway and collided with him, police reported.
The boy reportedly suffered a broken leg and lacerations but his injuries were not life-threatening, according to Palo Alto police spokeswoman Lt. Sandra Brown.
Initial reports were that an eastbound Volvo at 4:20 p.m. failed to stop for slowed traffic and tried to avoid a Toyota Prius. The Volvo spun out and struck the bicyclist.
Brown said today that officers were still working on the accident report to confirm the sequence of events.
