An 8-year-old was in stable condition Tuesday night after being hit by a minivan while riding on a bike.
Lexington police Lt. Kevin Metcalf said the child rode in front of a minivan driven by a woman Tuesday afternoon on the 800 block of Whitney Avenue. He didn't know whether the child was a girl or a boy.
The call came through police radios about 2:30 p.m. Minutes later, the child was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
Metcalf said the police reconstruction unit didn't think speed was a factor in the accident, and he doubts the driver will face criminal charges.
