INCIDENT: Major Injury Traffic Collision

LOCATION: Yucaipa Blvd / Yucaipa Valley Circle, Yucaipa

DRIVER 1: Josephine Bogdon, 62, Yucaipa resident

DRIVER 2: 16-year-old male, Yucaipa resident


On August 16th at 7:51 a.m. Josephine Bogdon was driving east on Yucaipa Blvd, preparing to make a left turn onto Yucaipa Valley Circle and enter the Vons Shopping Center.  The juvenile was riding his bicycle west on Yucaipa Blvd, approaching Yucaipa Valley Circle, on his way to Yucaipa High School.

Each had a green traffic signal.  Bogdon waited for a gap in oncoming traffic to make her turn, but didn’t see the juvenile approaching and turned directly into his path, causing his bicycle to collide broadside into her vehicle.  The juvenile suffered a serious head wound, concussion and possibly a broken jaw.  He was transported by AMR ambulance to the LLUMC trauma center in stable condition.

Anyone who witnessed this collision, and did not already give a statement, is urged to contact Deputy Erik Urban at the Yucaipa Station (909)918-2305.
