Plymouth: Charges filed in dirt bike crash

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Randolph man has been charged in connection with a dirt bike accident in Plymouth that took the life of a 14-year-old boy.

Authorities say 40-year-old Christopher Kelly is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Plymouth District Court on a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of a recreational vehicle accident with personal injury.

Police say James Ward Jr., a freshman at Plymouth North High School, was killed on Dec. 9 when he and Kelly collided head on.

Authorities say Kelly, who was hurt, left the scene.

The Enterprise reports that the misdemeanor charge carries no jail time. If convicted, Kelly faces a fine of up to $1,000 and the loss of his license for one year.

Environmental police filed a criminal complaint against Kelly on April 17.
