Teen Struck By Motorcyle, Receives Major Injures

The rider also received injuries and both were transported to an area hospital.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE (CNS) - A 14-year-old boy struck by a motorcycle in La Canada Flintridge was hospitalized today.

The teenager was with three friends when he ran into the intersection of Chevy Chase Drive and Foothill Boulevard and  was struck shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, sheriff's Lt. Brian Fitch of the Crescenta Valley Station said.

The boy was carried about 50 feet on the motorcycle before hitting the pavement, Fitch said.

He suffered a broken femur, a collapsed lung, facial abrasions and an injured hand, Fitch said, adding that he did not believe the boy's injuries were life threatening.

The motorcycle continued another 50 feet or so, then hit the center divider, he said. The rider suffered facial injuries, he said. Both were taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital, Fitch said.

Condolences. And this is why you look both ways before crossing the street. Not to mention, paying attention to the vehicles around you while you're crossing the street. At least, 95% if not more, of the people I see everyday just step off the curb completely oblivious to their surroundings because they are too entranced by their cell phone or it's like they think they are magically protected in the cross walk.

So true, Lisa. I missed a good chance to hit a jaywalking adult crossing in front of the Y yesterday. Not only was he illegally crossing, but he also walked right out in front of me as I was going 35 mph down Foothill.
