A 9-year-old girl is in serious condition after being hit by a car while riding her bike Tuesday, city police said. The motorist may have been on his cell phone at the time.
Madison Holley, 1309 First St., whose mother is Pamela Bustos, was taken by helicopter to University of New Mexico hospital in Albuquerque on Tuesday night.
According to police, Holley was apparently riding across First Street in front of her family’s house when Peter J. Salazar Jr., 33, 2514 Carmean Drive, accidentally struck her. Other children were reportedly in the area.
