14-Year-Old Boy Pronounced Dead after Pickup-Truck Accident near Park Creek Road

POLLOCK PINES, CA (June 5, 2024) – Monday, a teenage boy was killed and two were injured in a pickup-truck collision on Mormon Emigrant Trail. 

The fatal incident occurred around 2:10 p.m., along the Mormon Emigrant Trail, near Park Creek Road.

California Highway Patrol officers say the 14-year-old driver of a northbound pickup-truck veered off the roadway after making a turn. 

The truck then hit a tree and overturned, causing life-threatening injuries to the teen boy. Medics arrived and pronounced the teenage occupant dead at the scene. Although, authorities have not yet released his identity.

Responding paramedics transported the 40-year-old male passenger, believed to be the boy’s father, and his 8-year-old sister to a hospital. Reports said both passengers sustained major injuries.

In addition, all of the occupants were residents of Pollock Pines. 

The California Highway Patrol is working to determine why the 14-year-old got behind the wheel of the pickup. Officers do not believe alcohol played a factor.

Once available, further details will be provided about the fatal pickup-truck collision on Mormon Emigrant Trail.
