A 12-year-old boy riding a bike was injured Monday evening after he was struck by a vehicle.

Deputies with the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office were sent to a home in Byron about 6:25 p.m. Monday for a report of a boy who had been hit while riding his bike. The boy's father explained to police that the 12-year-old was hit by a car in the area of Ninth Street Northwest and Second Avenue Northwest, according to Sgt. Jim Schueller.

The boy was riding his bike on the bike path near that intersection and was turning left onto Ninth Street when he was struck by a motor vehicle on Second Avenue. The vehicle stopped briefly to make sure the 12-year-old was OK before leaving. The boy suffered abrasions on his right shoulder, elbow and knee, as well as bruising to his upper buttocks.

Anyone with information is asked to the sheriff's office.
