Vehicle Crash with Injury: 10th Street and Welch Avenue, a 14-year-old boy was riding his mountain bike to Berthoud High School when he struck a semi-trailer. The boy was transported to the hospital with serious injuries but is expected to make a full recovery. The quick actions of the truck driver kept the boy from receiving worse injuries.

On August 23, 2016, at approximately 7:13 a.m., the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office was advised of a traffic crash involving a bicyclist and a semi-truck near 10th Street and Welch Avenue in Berthoud. Deputies arrived two minutes later and found the 14-year-old male bicyclist had serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He was immediately transported to an area hospital for treatment.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Crash Team responded to investigate the circumstances of the crash. It was determined the commercial truck with trailer attached was traveling west in the 900 block of the alley between Mountain and Welch Avenues approaching the 400 block of 10th Street. The truck started a northbound (right) turn onto 10th Street from the alley. The bicyclist was traveling southbound on the northbound side of the road, was distracted, and rode into the side of the trailer close to the rear axles. The quick reaction of the truck driver to stop the vehicle most likely prevented the bicyclist’s injuries from being more severe. 10th Street was closed for about three hours during the investigation at the crash site.

A determination has not been made regarding what, if any, charges will be filed against the bicyclist. The truck driver was not cited. No further information will be released at this time as this is an on-going investigation.
