A 15-year-old boy is in critical condition after being pushed into traffic lanes on Monday near the intersection of Stetson Avenue and Seven Hills Drive in the City of Hemet.
Hemet Police Department officers and Hemet Fire Department paramedics arrived at the scene at about 4:25 p.m. and learned that the teen was riding his skateboard eastbound on Stetson Avenue when he was met at the intersection by a group of young people, according to authorities. A brief altercation ensued, resulting in the teen being pushed into traffic lanes.
According to the Hemet Police Department, a white Tesla being driven by a 52-year-old male was heading eastbound on Stetson Avenue in the #2 lane when the vehicle struck the teen, resulting in significant injuries.
The driver of the white Tesla stopped at the scene. He is not suspected of DUI and the vehicle speed does not appear to be a factor, authorities said. The driver is cooperating with investigators.
The teen was transported to an area hospital. He is in critical condition but expected to survive, authorities said.
The group of young people fled the scene, according to the Hemet Police Department. The teen’s skateboard is also missing.
Anyone who witnessed this incident is asked to contact Sergeant Gabe Gomez at [email protected] or 951-765-2396. Investigators are also interested in any dash-cam video that motorists in the area at that time might have recorded. “Those in the area who may not have captured the collision might have inadvertently recorded the group of young people leaving the area,” the department said. “This information could be very beneficial to investigators.”
