10-year-old seriously injured after being hit by car
According to an article from Lake County News, there was an incident in which a 10-year-old boy was seriously injured on Monday after being hit by a car.
As mentioned in the news, 10-year-old Ashton Kruenegel was riding his black Hyper bicycle shortly before 4:30 p.m. on Monday, in the intersection of Country Club Drive and 14th Avenue.
California Highway Patrol reported that the boy rode his bicycle directly into the path of a white 1999 Dodge Neon, driven by 56-year-old Chris Sorenson, a resident of Lucerne.
The boy struck the left front bumper of Sorenson’s vehicle, ejecting the child from the bicycle, throwing him into the windshield of the vehicle, said authorities.
As a result, Kruenegel sustained major injuries and was airlifted to UC David Medical Center where he was then treated for his injuries.
Furthermore, Sorenson was reportedly uninjured from the collision, said CHP.
Authorities stated that neither alcohol nor drugs were suspected to have been contributing factors in the car vs. bicycle accident.
Currently, this crash remains under investigation as authorities work to determine the exact cause and liable party in the crash.
Further details will be reported at a later time once the investigation has concluded.
