California Teenager Suffers Fatal Injuries in Accident With Recreational Vehicle
Posted on Dec 31, 2009
A California vehicle accident in the Imperial County Sand Dunes turned fatal when a 13-year-old from Santee was ejected from the vehicle, according to the Yuma Sun. The boy was reportedly driving a 2006 Suzuki Quad Racer R450 in the sand dunes when he lost control of the vehicle, which ejected him and caused fatal injuries. The California Highway Patrol reported that the teenager was wearing a helmet, and there is no suspicion of alcohol or drugs. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
