Young cyclist victim says “Put him in jail”

According to a report on, a local taxi driver hit a young cyclist in Melvindale.

Ten-year-old Madeline Gomez was just doing what kids do when it’s nice outside; riding her bike. Out of nowhere a taxi hit her, knocking her to the ground and knocking out her teeth.

A decent person would stop, but that cabbie just kept on driving.

The cab driver has not yet been caught.

She told the reporter “It’ll be a long time before she can think about even riding her bike again.” How sad.

We wish young Madeline a quick recovery.
