Boy struck by sand rail, dies
A 5-year-old San Dimas boy was accidentally killed by a family friend Friday in the Glamis sand dunes.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Robert Gonzalez said a San Dimas man — a member of a group from the San Dimas area — ran down the boy with a new sand rail dune buggy.
The boy had been climbing up the east side of a sand dune when the San Dimas off-roader crested over from the west side. The sand rail struck the boy's head, causing major injuries to his neck.
The boy was air-lifted to San Diego Children's Hospital but he has since been declared dead, according to the Highway Patrol.
