Youth unhurt in Sunday bike accident

After escaping serious injury in a bicycle-car accident Sunday night in front of the post office, a 12-year-old Thomson boy had words of advice for anyone riding a bicycle.

Larry Inskee's (next to bike) rear tire was badly bent, but he was uninjured after the Sunday evening accident in front of the post office.

"Look both ways all the time, every time," said Larry Inskee, as he looked at the severely bent rear wheel on his bicycle.

Larry was riding near the intersection of Jackson Street and National Avenue around 8:30 p.m. when he rode into the path of a Ford Taurus driven by Nealie Chalker of Thomson.

"I saw the three boys there and slowed down and the other two went across the road," said Ms. Chalker. "He started across the road. My passenger side front tire hit the bicycle. Then the next thing he came flying across the windshield. Then I saw him hit the cement. I was so scared."

Larry said he was also scared.

"All I really remember is seeing the car coming and then hitting the windshield," he said.

Emergency medical personnel treated the youth at the scene. No charges were filed.
