BETHESDA, Md. (WDVM) – A 13-year-old bicyclist was hit by a car Friday evening in Bethesda.
The girl was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. It happened along Old Georgetown Rd at the I-495 East on-ramp around 5:45 p.m.
An 83-year-old Virginia woman exited I-495 at Old Georgetown Rd and when she tried to get back on the highway, she hit the girl on her bike.
The driver was not hurt.
All northbound lanes and on and off-ramps were closed for several hours during the investigation.
The scene of this accident is just a block away from where a 17-year-old bicyclist was killed after a crash in early August.
