COLUMBUS — A 5-year-old southern Indiana boy has died after a dirt bike accident, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Sunday.
Conservation officers are investigating a fatal off-the-road vehicle accident that occurred Saturday in Bartholomew County, officials said.
The Columbus boy was operating a dirt bike on family property when he allegedly tried to maneuver the bike up an incline and lost control, causing the bike to hit a tree, authorities said.
He was unresponsive and transported to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
An initial investigation found he was wearing a helmet and other protective safety equipment.
