Paramedics attend to a teenage cyclist who was stuck by a vehicle in front of Claremont High School as classes were letting out on Monday afternoon. The driver of the vehicle, Albert Ravelo, said the teen darted out in front of his car and he did not have time to stop. Mr. Ravelo had just picked up his daughter at CHS and was driving south on Indian Hill Boulevard at about 25 mph when the cyclist exited the south parking lot at the school and attempted to cross the street. The boy reportedly did a little bunny hop and rolled across the car’s hood, which smashed the windshield but may have prevented him from receiving more serious injury.

There's nothing like those Santa Ana winds bringing in warmer weather and clear skies to the Southland. And you can see for miles looking south from Potato Mountain, just north of Mt. Baldy Road. But heat is in the forecast on Monday as daytime temperatures reached over 90 degrees. The warm weather will not last long however, as the warm winds will subside bringing more normal temperatures with highs in the upper 70s. Yet the mornings will still feel brisk, reaching only the low 50s. There's not much rain in the forecast, other than a chance on Friday during the day. Otherwise we have stable, normal temperatures for the next couple of weeks. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
