Infant hurt when 12-year-old cousin crashes motorcycle

A 9-month-old baby was hospitalized Monday night after her 12-year-old cousin crashed a motorcycle while holding the baby in his arms, Dallas police said.

The baby, who was not identified, was in stable condition. The wreck occurred outside her home, in the 9000 block of Lake June Road.

The infant's 12-year-old cousin was "carrying the baby in his arms when he lost control and wrecked the small motorcycle," according to a report.

The boy ran the motorcycle into a curb, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans.

According to police reports, a 19-year-old woman who was watching the baby went inside her apartment to use the bathroom for 15 minutes, leaving the child in the care of a 15-year-old female.

The 15-year-old then went inside also, handing the child off to the 12-year-old boy.

No charges were filed.

Fire-Rescue personnel responded around 8:30 p.m.

The boy sustained minor injuries to his knees. The baby suffered a head abrasion.

The 19-year-old and the 15-year-old returned just as the boy was crashing the motorcycle, a police spokesman said.
