The accident occurred when a 15-year-old male, whose name has been withheld by authorities, was injured late in the 9500 block of Seawall Blvd. around 10:30 p.m. According to a Galveston spokesperson, the cyclist was travelling east bound on Seawall Blvd—in the westbound lane of traffic—when he collided with an ambulance that was traveling westbound. The cyclist, travelling against the flow of traffic placed him in direct path of the ambulance. Police also indicate that the cyclist was not riding with adequate lighting equipment.
