HESPERIA: Boy, 10, Hit by Car, Killed in Main Street Accident

HESPERIA, California (August 18, 2014) – A 10-year-old boy identified as Arnold Covarrubias of Hesperia was killed Thursday night when his bicycle was hit by a car at the intersection of Main Street and Third Avenue, according to a press release by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

About 8:47 p.m., San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the collision and found the boy suffering from upper and lower body trauma as a result of being hit by the car. Police say the driver of a silver Kia SUV was traveling westbound on Main Street when the boy reportedly entered the intersection against a red traffic light.

Paramedics responded to the scene of the crash and transported the boy by ambulance to a nearby hospital, but he died of his injuries about 9:35 p.m.

The fatal crash is under investigation by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department.

The Inland Empire Biking Alliance placed a “Ghost Bike” at the intersection where the boy was killed as a memorial to him and a reminder to motorists to be aware of cyclists and always share the road.

The child’s family is accepting donations to pay for funeral costs at a relative’s bridal shop at 16147 Main Street in Hesperia. There was also a car wash held this past weekend to help raise money for this.
