PMHS student on bike struck by car while riding to school near Iden Avenue


A Pelham Memorial High School student was struck by a car while biking to school this morning near Iden Avenue, according to an email from Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Champ.

“The student was transported to a local hospital, where they are being treated for injuries that are thankfully not life-threatening,” wrote Champ.

The email did not identify the student.

“This unfortunate incident serves as an opportunity to reiterate the importance of driving, biking and walking safely, as well as drivers and bikers alike obeying all local traffic laws and signs,” the email said. “This is especially important during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up time when there is an increase in traffic on the roads, sidewalks and crosswalks.”

“We all play a role in creating safe conditions on the roads,” it said. “We also strongly encourage all bikers to wear a helmet while riding.”
