A 14-year-old Marysville boy suffered major injuries Thursday afternoon when the bicycle he was riding collided with the back of a pickup truck in Olivehurst.

The crash occurred about 3:19 p.m. on Powerline Road north of McGowan Parkway. A 33-year-old Olivehurst woman driving a 1989 Chevy pickup was stopped at the stop sign on McGowan Parkway waiting to turn right, or north, onto Powerline Road, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. The bicyclist was traveling west on the north sidewalk of westbound McGowan Parkway.

As the pickup started to turn right onto Powerline Road, the bicyclist also turned right, traveling at a high speed, behind the pickup, the CHP reported. The bicyclist was unable to guide the bicycle as it came off the sidewalk and collided with the right rear of the pickup.

The boy was ejected from the bike and suffered major injuries to his face and arms. The CHP reported that he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. He was taken to Rideout Memorial Hospital.
