El Centro, California - Tuesday morning, just prior to 8 o’clock, there was a vehicle versus pedestrian at the intersection of 8th and Orange.  The vehicle, a white truck, struck a child on a bicycle at the intersection. 

The child was transported from the scene by Gold Cross Ambulance Services and later flown out by an air ambulance service.  The accident remains under investigation and the injuries do not appear to be severe or life threatening at this time.  The El Centro Police Department would like to take the time to remind drivers to be cautious and alert.  This is especially important during school hours.
