ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 12-year-old boy was in critical condition Thursday after being struck by an SUV while riding his bicycle.
Steven W. Durk of Willow and a friend were riding their bikes north on the Parks Highway shortly before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday after having picked up the family mail, Alaska State Troopers said.
Durk attempted to cross the highway near Mile 73.6 and was struck by a Jeep driven by Joseph C. Porter, 22, of Evergreen, Colo., troopers said.
The boy was flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage.
Troopers said Porter was not cited and that the investigation was continuing.
