The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s crash report says Saturday afternoon’s incident happened at the motocross track. Troopers say the 13-year-old male failed to maintain control of his Kawasaki as it traveled over a berm. The dirt bike then went airborne and collided with the ground, ejecting the teen driver.
Our news partner KMIZ reports the teen was life-flighted to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead about an hour and 20 minutes later.
