The call came into the Washington County Sheriff's Office at around 2:30 that a child on a bike had been hit by a car on the Rim Road in East Machias. Deputies determined that the child was riding the bicycle across the road when he was hit by a vehicle driven by 25-year-old Chris Howard of Cutler. The child sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Howard was charged with operating without a license and taken to the Washington County Jail.
