A Menifee family is asking the public for information related to a bicycle accident Tuesday in which a 13-year-old boy was found unconscious in the middle of Menifee Road.

Sheila Curtis said her son was riding his bike home from Bell Mountain Middle School Tuesday afternoon. Some time between 3:12 and 3:30 p.m., he woke up face down in the middle of Menifee Road, at the top of the hill between Craig Avenue and Garbani Road. Curtis said the boy recalled waking up to find a woman standing over him.

According to the boy, the woman and a man helped him to the side of the road and waited with him briefly. The adults eventually left, however, without calling 911 or providing any further assistance.

The boy called his mother on a cell phone and asked her to come pick him up. After receiving treatment, he was found to have suffered a concussion and a broken wrist. He was wearing a helmet at the time.

Curtis said her son does not remember anything from the time he rode away from the stop sign at Craig Avenue to the moment he awoke in the middle of the road. She said the police told her they can't help because no report was filed and they have no way of determining the cause of the accident.

If anyone witnessed anything related to the accident or was one of those who stopped briefly to help, please call Sheila Curtis at 951-775-4014.

  1. Isn't it the job of the police to investigate the cause of the accident? Go investigate!!

  2. Hello I would like to share that a student came forward this morning who saw the accident and said that my son got his foot stuck in between the frame and the foks of his front pedal and went over the handle bars. We still would like to hear from the adults that were present as my son can not remember what happened. I would like to thank the people that got him out of the street but I would also like to say that we should always call the police and please don't leave a child unattended after an accident. I am not placing blame, I thank you all who stopped. I don't want anyone pointing fingers we, as parenst are just trying to find out what my son can't remember. We have a report of at least three vehicles stopped while my son was on the ground by a passerby.Thank you, and please tell your children to always ride with a buddy and if they can't to let you, their parents know, it is a lesson my son learned the hard way.
    Thank you,
    Sheila Curtis
