The California Highway Patrol is seeking information from anyone who witnessed a Feb. 15 bicycle crash in Carmichael that seriously injured a teenage bicyclist.

The 17-year-old boy was riding a black Schwinn cruiser-style bicycle on the north shoulder of westbound Fair Oaks Boulevard, east of Marshall Avenue, about 6 p.m. He was traveling eastbound when for unknown reasons he fell from his bicycle and struck his head, according to a CHP news release. He was not wearing a helmet.

The youth was transported to Mercy San Juan Medical Center and is listed in critical condition.

The CHP is asking the public’s help in finding possible witnesses or additional information that might assist investigators.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the special investigations unit at the North Sacramento Area CHP Office, (916) 338-6710 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Information also may be provided by calling Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357, or by sending a text message to 274637, then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
