Boy Killed in ATV Accident

Monday afternoon a ten-year old boy drove his all terrain vehicle onto a road in front of a pickup truck he apparently didn’t see. CHP officer Bryan Savage said, “the driver of the truck never saw the young man until the impact. He said truly all he saw was his helmet when he was right in front of his vehicle." The 10-year-old boy was killed instantly. A passenger in the pickup was injured when it swerved into a power pole knocking down lines for half a mile in each direction. The boy had been riding along a canal bank just ahead of his brother when he entered the roadway. Neighbor Penny Collins said it's a popular place for AVT and motorcycle riders. "They cross this main highway to come out and ride their motorcycles and they usually don't stop"
