An 11-year-old boy was airlifted to Rady Children’s Hospital after the bicycle he was riding was struck by a pickup truck at 10th and Main streets about 1:40 p.m. on Tuesday.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the boy was westbound on the south side of Main Street approaching the intersection with 10th Street when, witnesses said, he attempted to cross the intersection against the light. Alejandro Arroyo, 50, of Ramona was southbound on 10th Street when the bicyclist went into the path of the pickup he was driving and he was unable to avoid the collision, said CHP Officer Brian Pennings.

The bicyclist was thrown onto the hood of the pickup, and he was airlifted to the hospital with a possible broken right arm and right leg, said Pennings, adding that the bicyclist was not wearing a helmet.
