Lakeside teen killed in dirt bike crash

LAKESIDE, Calif. - Authorities Monday released the name of a young man who died in a weekend motorcycle accident in the Winter Gardens area.

Christian Nee, 18, was riding to the south on Sunview Drive without a helmet on when his 2013 Kawasaki dirt bike veered to the right and crashed into the back of a parked pickup truck near Cajon Vista Court shortly after 4:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol and county Medical Examiner's Office.

Medics took the Lakeside resident to Sharp Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead about 6:15 p.m., CHP public-affairs Officer Kevin Pearlstein said.

Intoxication did not appear to be a factor in the accident, Pearlstein said.
