A little boy on his bike, excited about going trick or treating, collides with a car.
The 10-year-old was riding his bike home from a friend's house to ask his mom about trick-or-treating.
Instead, he ended up in the hospital - badly hurt when he crashed into a car.
It happened Wednesday afternoon in Atwater.
"We seen the little boy flying through the air," said Ruben Marlowe, a neighbor who was one of the first to rush to the boy's side.
"His scalp was separated from his head. I actually saw his leg flop in a very unnatural manner. He was unconscious, his eyes rolled in the back of his head, a little bit of moaning then he went silent, it was very scary," said Marlowe.
Police say the impact smashed the boy's head and broke his leg.
Crews airlifted him to a Sacramento hospital.
"Terrible thing, terrible thing. He was heading home to ask about trick or treating with his friends," said Beverly Barros. She saw the crash and says the driver was not speeding.
Orange markings show where the driver stopped - just feet away from the boy.
Witnesses say, it wasn't the driver's fault.
"Both their views were blocked, it was a really bad situation. He turned off the sidewalk directly in front of the car. If he would've stopped and actually looked right left...he would've been okay," said Marlowe.
As bad as it looked, police tell KMPH he's expected to survive.
The boy was not wearing a helmet.
Police say the driver, a 64-year-old woman who was on her way to work, didn't do anything wrong.
