EVERETT — An 11-year-old boy on a bicycle collided with a minivan Friday and suffered facial and head injuries, said Battalion Chief Ed Oas of the Everett Fire Department.
The accident happened about 2 p.m. in the 1500 block of 63rd Street SE, Oas said. He was taken to Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby Campus, then to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was in serious condition Friday evening.
Firefighters raced to the scene. There, instead of wreckage, they found hobbyists flying model airplanes, said Battalion Chief Ed Oas.
The firefighters canceled the call at about the same time the citizen called back to say that the "plane" wasn’t occupied.
