According to news sources, an 8-year-old boy attempting to learn how to ride a dirt bike was seriously injured when he ended up veering out of the parking lot and crashing into a vehicle on the roadway.
The boy was learning how to ride the dirt bike in the White House Pool public parking and was being supervised by a 45-year-old man, the California Highway Patrol said.
