Cyclist, child in bike trailer hurt in crash

Posted: Updated:

A cyclist pulling a trailer with a child inside was hit by a car in Southeast Portland Wednesday night.

Police said it happened at around 6 p.m. at Southeast 60th and Division Street.

Investigators said two cars were stopped at a red light and a man pulling a child on his bike stopped behind them. A third car then approached and ran into the back of the bicycle trailer and the bike, trapping it between the front of the car and the rear of the vehicle in front of it.

The cyclist and the child were taken to a Portland hospital. Police described their injuries as non-traumatic.

The driver involved in the cash remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. Police said it does not appear that alcohol or drugs are a factor. No citations have been issued.

The crash is under investigation and roads were closed off in the area.
