A 10-year-old girl was airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul after she was struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in New Richmond, Wisconsin, Tuesday night.

A release from the New Richmond Police Department states officers responded to a report of a car vs. bicycle crash at the intersection of West Richmond Way and Sequoia Lane around 6:27 p.m. Tuesday.


Upon arrival, officers and other first responders found a 10-year-old female who had not been wearing a helmet. She was treated at the scene, then airlifted to Regions. There was no other information on her condition.
