(ABC 6 NEWS) -- An 11 year old boy was taken by helicopter to Rochester after being hit by a car while on his bicycle yesterday afternoon.

The Clarks Grove boy was riding his bike at about 2 Thursday when a neighbor backed out of her drive way and hit the boy.

The driver, Shelia Kay Hansen, had her view blocked by a utility trailer that was parked in her driveway at 208 East Main Street according to investigators with the Freeborn County Sheriff's office.

The report also indicated that the same trailer prevented the boy from seeing the car backing up.

He was life flighted to Saint Marys. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
