DOWNEY -
A 17-year-old Bellflower resident was killed after he hit a compact pickup truck on Thursday afternoon, officials said.

The boy was riding a motorcycle north on Lakewood Boulevard when he struck the back of the truck at 2:24 p.m 12/04/08
He succumbed to his injuries at the scene, Downey police officials said.

The truck driver, a 61-year-old resident of Downey, was injured, officials said.

Authorities have not released the names of either motorist.

At the scene, officials discovered the motorcycle involved in the crash had been stolen in Lakewood three weeks ago, according to Downey police. The accident is still under investigation.

Rumor has it, this accident happened at over 100mph. I know some kids who knew him, and didnt have the nicest things to say about him, way before this accident even took place. Stunting by the h.s with no gear, riding stolen bikes. etc.

Its amazing how far a little common sense can take you in life, and for some, just as amazing at how short it will make your trip with the lack thereof.

I'd love to say I feel bad, but I really don't.

I do hope the truck drive is ok, and his insurance covers everything though.

I had a guy who is 30 die down my street saturday night. The news reports said he had his helmet on but it flew off. I thought how the hell. I later came to know his head was still in the helmet when they found him. I am saden by this cause he was being stupid. I almost died from others stupidity. Wish I had gear on. thats neither here nor there. But I hope the truck driver in this senario is ok.

So it turns out some of my friends knew him and supposedly the truck cut off the bike, that gives no grief to whatever happened it was still stolen but damn what a tragedy.

Going over 100
On a stolen bike
possibly without gear?

If I stole a motorycle and crashed it @ 100mph, I'd excpect nobody to grieve for me. During the summer, we get a lot of Stolen Bike threads, and always the same responce.

"I'd kill that guy, or I'd XXX that guy"

Looks like at least one persons wish came true.




Yes, clearly this is a bit harsh, but such is life.

I'm not trying to defend him I'm just saying a family should never go through this. He was banged up so bad that he had to be cremated. This is what the little info I know of what happened.

Yeah and from what I hear he was never a good kid, he was always getting into trouble. So I guess Karma took the best of it all in one punch.
