The driver told police he never saw the child, but thought he hit something, got out of his truck and saw the child sitting near the edge of the road.

The 16-year-old drove the child home. He was then taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.

The 13-year-old struck the truck and was ejected from the bike.  Officers say he was wearing headphones at the time.

He was taken to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
