Teenage Bicyclist was struck by a Car Late Sunday Night in Anaheim California
15 Year Old Boy Hit By Car Sunday in Anaheim – A teenage bicyclist was hit by a car late Sunday night in Anaheim, California on Brookhurst Street, southbound. The boy is 15 year old Ramiro Macias, and he was struck while riding his bike in the bike lane near Ball Road. The accident occurred at 11:00 p.m.
The victim was hit by a car, a gray minivan, which fled the scene after the hit-and-run bike versus car collision. Anaheim Police Department traffic accident investigators said that there were witnesses to the serious car accident, which confirmed that the automobile, maybe a Dodge Caravan, was driving erratically. They say that the van swerved before he struck the bicyclist. The driver of the vehicle never stopped or slowed down after he crashed into the bike rider.
The victim is in critical condition in a medically induced coma after he was rushed to UCI Medical Center. Macias is a student at Savannah High School. He plays in the band. He was wearing a helmet when he was struck. Investigators are searching for the hit-and-run driver, who was described by witnesses to the accident as a Hispanic male between 30-40 years old. Police say that they are looking for the van, which will most likely have front end damage.
