Authorities in Massachusetts reported that two persons died over the weekend when the dirt bike they were riding crashed with an SUV close to a shopping centre.
Brady Petrucci, 20, of Raynham, and Robert Stocker, 17, of Woburn were the victims of the crash in Wareham just before 11 p.m. on Saturday, according to a statement released on Sunday by the Plymouth district attorney’s office.
They were discovered in the middle of the road, unresponsive, and suffering from severe wounds. Once at the hospital, they were declared dead.
According to the statement, neither victim was wearing a helmet, and the dirt bike lacked lights.
According to the preliminary results of the inquiry, the SUV was turning left when the dirt bike struck it. The SUV’s driver stayed at the scene.
According to a statement from the principal, Stocker attended Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School in Wakefield.
“We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Robert, a beloved student at Northeast Metro Tech,” Superintendent David DiBarri said.
He noted that the school had grief counsellors on hand during the entire week.
