A 17-year-old boy was injured this morning when he was hit while riding his dirt bike in Yucca Valley. According to CHP officer Randy O’Brien, about 11:40, a 12-year-old and a 17-year-old boy were riding their dirt bikes northbound on La Contenta and traveling through the Highway 62 intersection on a green light. O’Brien said Patricia Matthews, 22, of YuccaValley, was driving a 2012 VW Jetta when she made a left turn from southbound Yucca Mesa Road and hit the older boy on his dirt bike. The crash sent the boy flying about 75 feet, and he landed on the shoulder of northbound Yucca Mesa Road. He suffered broken bones in his leg and arm and was taken to DesertHospital in Palm Springs. The other boy and Matthews were uninjured. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
