A 6-year-old girl was seriously injured after being run over by a bicycle while playing at a party at a house near Wonder Lake Monday afternoon.

The Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District and Wonder Lake Fire Protection District responded around 1:53 p.m. Monday to the 8200 block of Howe Road in unincorporated Wonder Lake for a traumatic injury call.

Wonder Lake Fire Protection District Chief Mike Weber told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a family party was going on at a residence.

Children were playing on bicycles when a 6-year-old girl walked in front of one of the bicycles, Weber said.

The child was struck by the bicycle and seriously injured.

A LifeNet medical helicopter was initially requested to land nearby at Galt Airport, Weber said.

The helicopter was later canceled and a Wonder Lake ambulance transported the girl to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital.
