GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Grand Island Police are reminding people to say off the roadways when driving mini bikes, following crash with a vehicle.

The accident happened Wednesday just after 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of 7th Avenue and Beal Street in Grand Island.

According to police, a 12-year-old was driving the mini bike and ran into a vehicle that was leaving a stop sign.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was unable to see the bike, as it had a low profile.

Grand Island Police Captain Jim Duering said that this is one of the many reasons why mini bikes aren’t allowed on the roadways.

“Not only do they tend to have a low profile, but they also don’t have proper lighting or signaling to be on the road with vehicles,” he said.

The driver of the bike was uninjured.

Mini bikes have a small motor on them and are for sidewalk use only.
