"Witnesses said he was crossing against the light," said Creel. "He made it across the eastbound lanes but was hit in the westbound lanes by a Toyota Sienna van."
The impact reportedly smashed the windshield of the van and threw the youth to the ground. Creel said the young cyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Paramedics were called to the scene by CHP, and the boy was airlifted from the roadway and transported to Children's Hospital Oakland. He was reported in fair condition Tuesday, having suffered a broken leg in the crash.
Creel said there were no charges as the investigation of the crash has not been completed.
