Virginia Beach, Va. - A child received serious injuries after officials say the minor hit a pick-up truck while riding a bicycle.

Police say this happened in the 2000 block of General Booth Blvd. Calls came in at around 4:10 p.m.

They say a 2008 Ford F150 stopped at the exit of the parking lot at 2000 General Booth Boulevard.

The truck tried to make a right turn onto General Booth and that's when the bicyclist, who was going westbound on the sidewalk, did not stop and rode into the passenger side front quarter panel of the truck.

The truck driver stopped.

The child was flown to the hospital via Nightingale. He is expected to make a full recovery.

No charges have been filed.
