10 Year Old Struck by Car on Busy Delco Road

Posted: Updated:

A 10 year old Broomall boy is recovering from serious injuries he suffered after he was struck while riding his bike on a busy Delaware County road.

The boy who has not been identified was struck by a silver Buick near the intersection of Sproul and Langford Roads in Broomall around 12:40 pm Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses say the driver of the Buick collided with the boy who was not wearing a helmet.  It is not clear who is at fault. Classmates say the boy is a 5th grader at Russell Elementary.

Police dispatchers tell Fox 29 the boy was unconscious as he was airlifted to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Family friends say the boy suffered serious injuries but is stable.

Residents nearby complain this section of Route 320 with a mix of residential and commercial traffic is too dangerous for drivers and pedestrians who don't use designated crosswalks.

"People who are driving don't want to be at risk and having people slamming on their breaks because people are crossing where they want to cross" said Frances Bell of Broomall.

Just 100 yards away from the latest crash is a roadside memorial for a woman who was killed by a passing motorist while crossing Sproul Road.

Bicyclist Ed Shihadeh from Broomall says he was nearly hit by a car just a few months ago

"Drivers need to be more aware and they are basically you basically get the attitude I'm in the car I got something that's bigger than you. Get out of the way" said Shihadeh.

Some teenagers we spoke with also see the potential danger and are not surprised there was another accident.

"It's pretty nasty road..you don't want to ride you bike across there you might not want to even cross" said Pete McGinnis.

The driver of the latest crash has not been charged.  Marple Township Police say they will have more on the crash on Monday morning.
