PARADISE, Calif. -

A boy was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after police said he rode his bike into the side of a car.

The collision happened around 9:45 a.m. about a quarter-mile south of Bille Road.

Police said a boy, estimated to be 12 years old, rode his bike into the road, colliding with the right front fender of a car.

The boy suffered an injury to his leg, and was taken by ambulance to Enloe Medical Center in Chico.  His mother was at the scene and traveled in the ambulance with the boy.

The collision happened about one mile north of the location where 13-year-old Skyler Millner was hit and killed by a car on May 31.
