An 11-year-old boy died over the weekend after falling off his bike in Fontana in what police are calling a “freak accident.”
An 11-year-old boy died Sunday afternoon after he suffered trauma to his chest following a crash into another boys bicycle as the two rode around inside their apartment complex, Fontana police said on Monday.

The boy crashed into the back of his 8-year-old friends bicycle tire – sending the older boy into his own handlebars and then onto the ground, Fontana police Officer Rich Guerrero said.

Major Traffic Collision – 9200 block of Citrus AvePortions of the apartment complex are closed for the investigation. Please stay out of the area if possible while Fontana PDs MAIT investigators determine the cause of the collision.@FontanaPD #FontanaPD pic.twitter.com/r7UK4rOZrv
Officers and medical personnel were called to the apartment complex in the 9200 block of Citrus Avenue around 3 p.m Sunday, but the boys mother already had started taking him to the hospital.
The mother stopped at San Bernardino and Juniper avenues, where paramedics arrived and began trying to help the boy, who was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
Neither child was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, police said. However, that did not appear to factor into the boys fatal injuries.
