Child on bike injured in collision with car

NICE A 9-year-old boy was injured late Tuesday morning after he rode his bicycle into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Humble said the collision happened at 11:55 a.m. on Manzanita Avenue west of Hudson Avenue in Nice.

Humble said the child rode his bike out of a private driveway and into the street. A 71-year-old Nice man was driving eastbound on Manzanita in a Mercury sedan, and couldn't get his car stopped in time to avoid hitting the boy on his bike.

The 9-year-old, who was wearing a helmet, is believed to have suffered fractures to both legs, said Humble.

He was flown to UC Davis Medical Center for treatment due to the extent of his injuries, Humble said.

Humble said Officer Nick Powell is investigating the incident.

Another collision – a solo vehicle versus a tree – that resulted in major injuries was reported on Highway 20 in Lucerne late Tuesday but no further information was available because CHP offices had closed.
