Teen crash victim identified, reunited with family

Hours after San Diego police asked for the public’s help, a 16-year-old teen bicyclist who was seriously hurt in a Christmas Eve crash in Lincoln Park was identified and reunited with his family. 

“Thank you all for the help. We’ve been able to re-unite this 16 year old with his family,” San Diego police officials said in a tweet Wednesday night. “Keep them in your prayers.”

The teen’s name was not released. 

He was riding a mountain bike north on South 47th Street about 6:40 p.m. Saturday when he ran a red light and was struck by a black Chevrolet Trailblazer at Imperial Avenue, police Lt. Scott Wahl said. 

The cyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, hit his head on a curb. He was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital with a serious head injury.

The 61-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, Wahl said.
