Casey Ray Jr. is healing at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton. The 9-year-old has a concussion and road rash across his body after he was thrown from his father’s motorcycle while they were leaving a football game.
An undetermined white vehicle hit the motorcycle around 8:30 p.m. Friday night on the 91 Freeway near the Spruce Street exit in Riverside.
Casey and his father were ejected. He was covered in blood when his mother first arrived on the scene of the crash. The 9-year-old had a full face helmet that was strapped to his head, but it was thrown from his body during the crash.
He has been in the hospital recovering ever since.
The driver who clipped them left the scene and CHP is investigating the incident as a hit-and-run.
The family is asking for the public’s help to identify the driver who they hope will do the right thing and turn themselves in.
