A 12-year-old boy from Belle Mead was attempting to cross County Route 601 on his bicycle when he was struck by a car then transported to the hospital on Wednesday at 6:09 pm. The boy was released from the hospital following treatment for facial wounds.

Montgomery Township police told The Montgomery News on Thursday that the boy was attempting to cross Belle Mead-Blawenburg Road (Rt. 601) from the northbound side of the road, near Reading Boulevard, when he pulled out from behind a line of stopped traffic.

A preliminary police investigation revealed that Eunhwa Yang, 43, of Hillsborough was driving in the southbound lane of Route 601 in a 2008 Toyota Sienna. She crashed into the bicyclist while he was trying to cross the roadway.

The boy, whose name is being withheld because he is a minor, was not wearing a helmet. Police said he sustained facial injuries, and was taken by the Montgomery EMS to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for treatment. He was later released.
