A teenage boy was in critical condition Monday after colliding with a pickup truck west of Dinuba.
California Highway Patrol Sgt. Michael Donnelly said the crash happened around 4 p.m. The 13-year-old was driving a 2006 Honda ATV north on Road 48 as a Chevrolet Silverado pickup also was driving north.
Donnelly said Nathan Laemmlen, 27, of Reedley was driving 60 to 65 mph when the teen made a turn west toward Avenue 400 and was struck by the oncoming pickup.
Donnelly said the teen, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the ATV. He was airlifted to Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia with major injuries but was later transported to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera.
