Central Maine Teen Killed in Dirt Bike Crash Over The Weekend
It was a tragic end to an incident that happened over the weekend in Minot when a Central Maine teen was killed in a motocross crash.
WGME 13 is reporting an investigation is underway following a fatal incident that happened on Saturday morning at around 11:30 at Hemond's MX and Offroad Park in Minot, Maine.
Police say that 911 calls came in reporting that a teenager had lost control of his dirt bike while negotiating a jump. Upon landing, the 19-year-old lost control of the bike and left the track. This caused the bike to subsequently crash through multiple fences before hitting an embankment.
WGME is reporting that several first responders attempted life-saving measures after getting to the scene, however, those efforts proved to be unsuccessful and the 19-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim has since been identified as, Jessie Moody, 19 of Lewiston, Maine. WGME reports that the investigation into the crash and what led to it are still under investigation as of Monday morning.
This is a developing story and we will continue to keep it updated as more information becomes available to us.
Our thoughts go out to Jessie's family and friends during this extremely difficult time.
