Milford bicyclist struck by car

A 14-year-old Milford boy is recovering after being struck by a car while riding his bicycle on Spruce Street Monday night.

The boy, Nicolas West, suffered head trauma, but the extent of his injuries is still unclear, said police. Superintendent Robert Tremblay said Tuesday night that he was told by the boy’s mother Daniele Sarkisian that her son was placed in medically induced coma Monday night and into Tuesday, but now is “alert, responsive, and seems to be recovering well.”

Police say West was breathing but unconscious when they arrived at the scene and was responsive in the ambulance headed to Milford Regional Medical Center. West was taken by medical rescue helicopter from Milford Regional to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, police said. Tremblay said that West will remain at the hospital while he recovers. Tremblay said West is a freshman at Milford High School. He had been crossing Spruce Street from the Stacy Middle School to the library at 6:43 p.m., police said. West, who was riding alone and without a helmet, was struck by a white Ford Fusion driven by a 78-year-old Hopedale woman, who stopped and pulled over after the accident, police said.

He was not in a crosswalk and the driver, who was traveling west toward Congress Street, was upset but clear-thinking and fully cooperative, police said. They said it appears speed was not a factor in the crash.

Police said the driver had not been charged. The accident is still under investigation by the Milford Police Department and the Central Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council’s Crash Reconstruction Team with the assistance of the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office, police said.
