Car Strikes Father on Bicycle and His 3 Year-Old Son In Attached Bike Trailer.

37 year-old Joel Bierling, and his 3 year-old son, are now recovering from their personal injuries. The recovery comes a week after they were struck by a car while the two were riding on a bicycle with an attached trailer in Cannon Township, Michigan.

According to the Michigan State Police, Bierling, of Rockford, Michigan, was riding his bicycle on Belding Road in Cannon Township, with his 3 year-old son secured in an attached bicycle trailer, when the bicycle accident occurred.

A car being driven by a 40 year-old Rockford woman struck Bierling and his son at around 3:45 p.m. The two bicycle crash victims were en route to pick up Bierling’s other son from an after-school program at the time of the accident.

Bierling and his 3 year-old son were taken to the Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital emergency room. The 3 year-old suffered scrapes and bruises after being thrown from the bicycle. He received medical treatment and was later discharged.

Bierling was treated and released from the hospital the following day after suffering a broken foot, road rash and nearly 20 cuts over his body requiring stitches. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the bicycle accident.

The 40 year-old Rockford woman was arrested for an alcohol-related offense. Her passenger, a 41 year-old man, was also arrested for a non-driving offense.

Michigan State Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the bicycle accident.
