7-Year-Old Girl Hurt in Motorcycle Crash

A seven-year-old girl was hurt when she was thrown off the motorcycle she was a passenger on.

Police say the bike was on Route 46 in Cameron County at about 4 o’clock Saturday afternoon when the valve stem of the back tire malfunctioned, and the tire went flat. The driver, 30-year-old Ronald McLaughlin of Johnsonburg lost control of the bike, and when it turned onto its side, Hailey James of Johnsonburg was thrown off.

Police say Hailey's helmet wasn't on properly. She was taken by ambulance to Penn Highlands St. Marys for treatment of moderate injuries. McLaughlin wasn’t hurt.
