On February 15, 2015 at approximately 10:30 am, at the intersection of Waters Avenue West and Pinehurst Drive a 12 year old cyclist was traveling eastbound through the crosswalk at Pinehurst Drive with her mother, also on a bike, behind her. A mid-sized SUV was traveling southbound on Pinehurst Drive and attempted to turn westbound on Waters Avenue West, failing to stop at the red light. The SUV struck the child, knocking her to the ground; she sustained minor injuries. The driver of the SUV was cited. The victim and her mother were provided bike helmets by HCSO.
Corporal Doug White contacted Walmart to purchase a new bike for the victim, as hers was badly damaged. Walmart donated a new bike for the girl, and it was delivered to the victim's residence by Corporal White.
