Doreen Seibert, Witness: "I heard the crash. When I turned my head I saw a small yellow bicycle in the middle of the road in pieces. And I had to take a few steps to see the body, which was a few feet forward."

The boy was concious and crying, but he had head injuries. He was flown to Primary Children's Hospital in serious condition.

Police are reminding drivers to slow down and bikers to wear helmets.
