18-year-old on bike hit by van in Fargo

UPDATED 11:24 a.m.
FARGO - An 18-year-old man was injured Wednesday night after he was hit by a van while riding his bicycle in south Fargo.

The man was riding with his brother when both tried to cross 25th Street at Fremont Drive South, WDAY-TV reported. The crash was reported to the regional dispatch center just before 9 p.m.

The man suffered two broken legs and possible minor internal injuries, Fargo police Sgt. Julie Hinkel said. The injuries were not life-threatening, she said.

The victim’s name and condition were not released.

Fargo police said the unidentified driver was unlikely to face charges because the bicyclists did not cross the street at a designated inter-section, according to WDAY.
