First Published May 28 2014 09:55 am • Last Updated May 28 2014 11:52 am

A 9-year-old Santaquin boy is faring better after a pick-up truck hit him on his bicycle.

The boy was riding down a hill Tuesday afternoon when he reached the intersection of 270 S. 900 East. The boy entered the intersection, where he was struck by a northbound truck about 4:06 p.m., said Santaquin Police Officer Matt Drussel.

The truck was traveling about 30 mph at the time of the crash. It appears the boy may not have stopped for a stop sign at the intersection; 270 South has signs, but 900 East does not, Drussel pointed out.

The boy was taken to the hospital and placed in intensive care, where doctors were monitoring bruises on his organs, Drussel said.

By Wednesday morning, the boy was doing "very well," the officer said.
