Serious Accident in Temecula

Two minors were seriously injured in an accident in Temecula, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. The crash occurred on Wednesday, March 20, just before 8 p.m., near North General Kearny Road and Nicolas Road. According to investigators, the minors were thrown from the Sur-Ron bicycle when it collided with a Honda sedan. The driver of the Honda was not injured, according to a press release. The statement did not specify which party was responsible for the accident. According to the Sheriff's Department, a bicycle lacking pedals and powered by a motor over 750 watts is an electric motorcycle and cannot be legally ridden by unlicensed youth on public streets. To ride an electric motorcycle on public streets, riders must have: a valid motorcycle license, a Department of Transportation-certified motorcycle helmet, valid registration, and minimum motorcycle liability insurance. The bicycle lacked basic safety equipment necessary for use on public streets, according to the statement. Sergeant Deirdre Vickers, a sheriff's spokesperson, declined to say how old the minors were. She said they did not have a license but did not specify if they were old enough to have one. She also did not say if they were wearing helmets or what safety equipment they were missing.
