LAKESIDE (CNS) - An 18-year-old Lakeside man suffered fatal injuries when he crashed a dirt bike into a parked car in the Winter Gardens community, the California Highway Patrol said Monday.
The rider, who was not wearing a helmet, veered to the right while riding a 2013 Kawasaki dirt bike at around 30 to 40 miles per hour south on Sunview Drive approaching Cajon Vista Court around 4:40 p.m. Sunday, according to CHP Officer Kevin Pearlstein.
The front of the dirt bike struck the rear of a stationary GMC pickup truck, Pearlstein said.
The injured dirt bike rider was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital and pronounced dead around 6:15 p.m. Sunday, Pearlstein said. His name was not immediately available.
Pearlstein said it appeared that neither drugs nor alcohol were factors in the crash.
