12-year-old girl suffers brain bleed after skateboard crash

SAN DIEGO, CA – A young girl suffered major injuries after crashing into a minivan on her skateboard in the City Heights on Wednesday evening.

The Times of San Diego reported that the 12-year-old was riding her skateboard downhill and eastbound on Estrella Avenue at about 5:30 p.m. She slammed into the rear bumper of a 2011 Toyota Sienna as it drove through the intersection of Estrella and Polk Avenues.

The injured child was transported to Rady Children’s Hospital with a brain bleed and a fractured skull.
