Mikal Bond, 13, the Maple Hill teenager injured in a bicycle accident remains in critical condition as of July 19, 2011.
Bond was taking part in the Lizard Under the Skillet bike ride when she collided with a pickup truck. The Lizard Under the Skillet bike ride was organized by the Lawrence Bicycle Club. The ride started at 6:00 a.m. at Broken Arrow Park.
Bond was riding her bicycle eastbound on North 110 Road at 7:27 a.m. on Saturday, July 9. Kathy D. Robb, 46, of Melvern, was driving her 2006 Ford pickup southbound on country road 1055.
Bond went through a stop sign and struck the pickup. Neither Robb nor her passenger, 19-year old Kyle Dean Robb, was injured in the crash.
Bond was taken by Life Star to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo.
According to a spokesperson for Children’s Mercy Hospital, there has been no change in her condition.
Since the accident, a fund has been set up at the Community National Bank in Topeka, KS, to help the Bond’s family with medical costs. Concerned citizens can drop off donations at any branch office. The bank is waiving all fees on the account, so 100 percent of all donations will go to the Bond family.
