An 11-year-old boy, Cassius Carey, was hit on his bicycle by a vehicle.
We’re told he had bruises and cuts to his face, arms, and legs, but doctors say no internal bleeding and no broken bones.
As of Friday evening, he was being monitored at St. Mary’s Hospital in Duluth.
The incident happened at about 3 p.m. at the corner of Hammond Avenue and North 12th Street where witnesses say an SUV struck the boy.
