A 13-year-old Altoona boy was in serious condition after being struck by a car while crossing a street Monday.

The teenager was hit while riding his bike across 36th Avenue Southwest at 8th Street Southwest near Walmart at about1:30 p.m. Monday, said Altoona police Sgt. Brett Handy.

Handy said a driver southbound on 36th Avenue stopped and signaled for the teen to cross at a sidewalk about 50 feet away from the intersection. As the cyclist crossed, he did not see the other vehicle heading north on 36th Avenue.

The teenager was transported by ambulance to the local hospital, where Handy said he underwent surgery. Handy said last time he checked, the victim's condition remained serious.

No one has been charged in the incident, Handy said, but he encouraged any witnesses with any additional information to step forward.

The incident remains under investigation.
