Late Monday afternoon a car and bike collided on East Highway 260
in front of Jiffy Lube. The accident is still under investigation
by the Payson Police Department, so no citations have been issued.
The 14-year-old boy on the bicycle was transported to Payson
Regional Medical Center, but had not sustained serious injuries,
said Commander Don Engler of the PPD. Engler said witnesses saw the
youngster riding back and forth in the crosswalk at that location,
doing ‘wheelies,' which may have been a contributing factor.
