14-year-old boy in surgery after being run over

According to the Pioneer Press, a 14-year-old W. St. Paul boy was hit by a car Friday while riding his bike to school. Fernando Hernandez is now sedated after surgery this afternoon and Leutenant Brian Sturgeon of the W. St. Paul Police Department said more surgeries are possible in the near future.

Hernandez was just two blocks away from his school at the intersection of Bidwell Street and Moreland Avenue when a car proceeded through the 4-way intersection and struck him.

According to the Star Tribune, Sturgeon said the female driver was not cited and didn't appear to have broken any traffic laws. The school is now reviewing safety rules with students.
