The 13-year-old girl was seen talking with police as she was transported by American Medical Response ambulance to Doernbecher Children's Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Graham indicated the bicyclist "came out of nowhere," and the girl told officers she didn't stop at the stop sign. No citations were issued at the scene.

Early this year, Miwaukie and Clackamas County officials installed the intersection's traffic diverter to reduce the risk of crashes due to vehicular turning movements.

"It is essential for all users of the roadway to follow posted speeds, traffic signs and stay alert to prevent crashes," said Milwaukie Police Chief Luke Strait.
