Bicyclist Hospitalized After Losing Balance and Riding Into Traffic

A 12-year-old girl is recovering after being run over by a landscaping trailer. This happened while she was riding her bike in Laconia on Wednesday morning.

The police say she was riding her bike on a sidewalk at around 7:30 near North Main and Oak Streets. She was using her cellphone and lost balance. She rode into traffic and hit a truck that was stopped and towing a trailer.

The driver didn’t realize what happened and drove forward, running her over.

Police say the girl suffered from minor injuries and was taken to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

When people are not paying attention to other people around them on the road, they can do serious damage.
