(BEDFORD) - A Bedford boy suffered minor injuries after the bike he was riding was hit by a car Wednesday afternoon.
According to a Lawrence County Police report, 53-year-old Brenda Bahe was traveling east on Sunny Acres Drive and was topping a hill at the intersection of Sunny Acres Drive and Tinton Avenue when she saw 8-year-old Deshawn Owings on his bike in her lane of traffic.
