Myakka City, Florida - A 7-year-old boy was killed Saturday after getting into an accident on his dirt bike during a Florida Trail Riders Association sanctioned race.
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office says it happened in Myakka City in a rural area just off Clay Gully Road where ATV/Motorcycle trails are located.
Detectives say Evan Max of Pompano Beach was competing on his dirt bike and his dad was nearby.
He says Evan and Lynwood Ansley, an adult monitoring the race, didn't see each other and both of their dirt bikes collided during a race where 15 kids between the ages of 5 and 8 were competing.
