BROCKTON – Massachusetts State Police and Wareham Police are investigating a fatal dirt bike versus motor vehicle crash, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.
Last night at approximately 10:52 p.m., Wareham Police received two 911 calls reporting a dirt bike versus motor vehicle crash in the area of 121 Marion Road. Upon arrival, police and emergency personnel located two male victims unresponsive in the roadway with apparent serious injuries. Both were transported to Tobey Hospital where they were pronounced dead of their injuries. The victims were identified as Robert Stocker, 17, of Woburn, and Brady Petrucci, 19, of Raynham.
Wareham Police contacted Massachusetts State Police Troopers assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office and an investigation commenced. The victims were riding on a Kawasaki dirt bike and were not wearing helmets. There were no front or rear lights on the dirt bike.
Preliminarily, it appears the pair on the dirt bike crashed into an operator in a 2017 Buick Envision who was taking a left turn onto Gibbs Road from Marion Road. The operator of the motor vehicle stopped immediately. The investigation is ongoing.
