Motorcycle hits car, driver is 10 year old boy!
Puerto Rico is a wonderful place, it really is. But it gets stupid and weird from time to time.
A 10 year old boy is in critical condition at the Rio Piedras Medical Center, after crashing a motorcycle he was driving into a moving car.
The minor, who was not identified, was driving the motorcycle between Progreso and Hipodromo street in Santurce, when he tried to pass a Nissan Pathfinder on the street. He miscalculated and hit the Pathfinder. He was ejected from the motorcycle and received injuries in his head and body.
Carmen Peña Moran, the minors mother took the kid to Dr. Hospital, where he was transferred to the Medical Center.
The driver of the Pathfinder, who was not identified, was unhurt.
A couple of questions on this...
Why was a 10 year old driving a motorcycle in a busy street?
Where are the parents of this kid?
This is a part of the Hip Hop / Gangster culture that permeates in Puerto Rican society these days. A mind set that worship money, drug dealing, stealing, violence and the degradation of women. A culture that rewards brutality and mediocrity over civility and intelligence.
These are their sad consequences.
