North Texas Teen Struck While Riding Mini Motorcycle – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth


A 14-year-old boy was seriously injured in White Settlement on Tuesday after being hit by an SUV while riding a miniature motorcycle down the street, police say.

White Settlement Police Chief Christopher Cook said it happened shortly before 11:44 a.m. at the intersection of South Cherry Lane and Gibbs Drive, next to Brewer Middle School.

The teenager was heading east on Gibbs Drive on what Cook described as a mini-motorcycle when he collided with an SUV heading north on Cherry Lane.

The boy was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, Cook said, noting the boy was not wearing a helmet at the time. He was being treated at John Peter Smith Hospital for a head injury and broken bones, Cook said.

Cook said officers were investigating the cause of the accident and who had the right of way. The boy’s motorcycle was not street legal, Cook said.

The driver of the SUV pulled over and was cooperating with the police investigation.

The White Settlement Independent School District told NBC DFW that he was not a student in their district.

The investigation is ongoing, Cook said.
