BIKE VANDALS: Boy, 12, injured after falling off bike with loosened wheel; other vandalism recently reported


A 12-year-old boy that fell off a bike with a loose wheel caused by vandalism escaped serious injury – but likely only because the helmet absorbed the impact instead, according to police.

“It’s broken, so obviously it took the blow,” Police Chief Lt. Anders Haugerud told Svalbardposten, which first reported the story Wednesday.
