At approximately 3.20pm on Friday 14 October 2016, Geraldton Police responded to a report of a traffic crash which occurred on John Willcock Link near the intersection of Fitzgerald Street.
A road train was carting a load of iron ore to the Geraldton Port and driving along John Willcock Link. At the same time a four year old girl was riding her bicycle and attempted to cross from the northern side of John Willcock Link to the southern side.
Another vehicle was travelling in front of the road train and entered into the right turn lane when the driver observed the four year old crossing the road. The driver of the vehicle came to a stop just prior to the pedestrian crossing point to allow the four year old to cross in front of him. After the driver of the truck noticed the vehicle stopping in an unusual position he immediately reduced his speed however the girl crossed in front and collided with the front corner of the bull bar.
The four year old was taken by ambulance to Geraldton Regional Hospital where she is being treated for injuries sustained to her leg and is in a stable condition.
