Two individuals lost their lives in a tragic accident involving a dirt bike and an SUV in Wareham, Massachusetts. The victims have been identified as 17-year-old Robert Stalker from Woburn and 20-year-old Brady Petrucci from Raynham. The incident occurred on Saturday night, and both victims were pronounced dead upon arrival at Tobey Hospital in Wareham.

According to Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz, Stalker and Petrucci were riding on a Kawasaki dirt bike without wearing helmets when it collided with a 2017 Buick Envision. The SUV was making a left turn onto Gibbs Road from Marion Road at the time of the accident. The dirt bike did not have any front or rear lights, further exacerbating the situation.

The driver of the Buick immediately stopped after the collision, cooperating with authorities. An investigation into the crash is currently underway, being conducted by Massachusetts State Police assigned to Cruz’s office and the Wareham Police.

This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the importance of practicing safe driving and adhering to traffic regulations. Wearing helmets while riding motorcycles or dirt bikes can significantly reduce the risk of severe head injuries or fatalities in case of an accident. Additionally, ensuring that vehicles are equipped with proper lighting is crucial for visibility, especially during nighttime or low-light conditions.

As the investigation progresses, more information about the accident may become available.
