SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — An 11-year-old boy was injured Thursday evening after being struck by a car while riding his bike in San Diego's Lomita neighborhood.

According to the San Diego Police Department, the crash happened just before 5:30 p.m. on the 1300 block of Woodrow Avenue.

Officers say the child crossed over the northbound lane and went onto the east sidewalk before turning back and leaving the sidewalk in a westerly direction.

A 37-year-old woman was driving her Hyundai Elantra in the northbound lane of 1300 Woodrow Ave when her car hit the child as he entered the lane from the sidewalk.

The boy sustained a fractured left femur and tibia, which are not considered life-threatening.

SDPD says the woman was not injured and stayed at the scene after the crash. She is not suspected of driving under the influence.

The crash is still under investigation.
