2 dirt bike riders killed in Wareham crash

WAREHAM, Mass. (WLNE) — Two dirt bike riders from Massachusetts were killed after the dirt bike they were riding on crashed into an SUV in Wareham, according to authorities.

Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said the collision happened just before 11 p.m. Saturday on Marion Road.

Cruz said the initial investigation suggested a Kawasaki dirt bike crashed into a 2017 Buick Envision that was taking a left turn onto Gibbs Road from Marion Road.

First responders found 17-year-old Robert Stalker, of Woburn, and 20-year-old Brady Petrucci, of Raynham, unresponsive in the roadway suffering from serious injuries.

Both victims were transported to Tobey Hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Cruz said Stalker and Petrucci were not wearing helmets while riding the bike, which also did not have front or rear lights. The driver of the SUV immediately stopped after the crash.

The crash is under investigation.
