TEEN BICYCLIST HIT BY CAR IN LITTLE SILVER

just_in1A 16-year-old Little Silver boy was seriously injured late Friday morning when he was struck by a car while crossing Seven Bridges Road on a bike, police say.

The unidentified teen was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune by the borough volunteer squad with MONOC paramedics on board following the 11:48 a.m. accident, said police Chief Dan Shaffery.

The boy’s condition was not immediately available late in the afternoon.

According to Shaffery, the boy, was crossing the road at the Little Silver Point Road intersection on a bike when he was his by a 2004 Infiniti QX5 driven by Homeira Ghiacy-Walter, 41, of Monmouth Beach, who was headed southbound on Seven Bridges.

The boy is believed to have been wearing a helmet at the time, Shaffery said.

Police called in the Monmouth County Serious Accident Reconstruction Team to conduct a joint investigation, an effort that led to a three-hour shutdown of Seven Bridges, Shaffery said.

Though the matter remains under investigation, no charges are expected against Walter, Shaffery said.
