“This video is a great example of why you should come to a complete stop and look both ways at a stop sign,” says the South Jordan Police post. “This is also a good reminder for for pedestrians and bicyclists to pay extra attention when crossing streets and intersections.
“Please think of this video the next time you come to a stop sign,” the statement says. “Also speak to your kids about bike safety when approaching intersections. Fortunately, the child in this case only had some bumps and bruises.”
