An adult woman and small child reported minor injuries after a crash between a minivan and a bicycle Monday morning in east Vancouver.

The crash was reported at the intersection of Mill Plain Boulevard and Southeast 164th Avenue just after 11:10 a.m., according to emergency dispatch logs.

Vancouver Fire Department Capt. Kevin Murray says the crash involved a bicycle towing a trailer and a minivan.

“The bike was pretty much underneath the van,” he said.

An adult woman riding the bike and small child in the trailer were treated for minor injuries, Murray said.

Vancouver police are on scene.

The crash, which happened in the middle of the intersection, backed up traffic in the area, Murray said.
