POINCIANA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 14-year-old boy has died after his dirt bike collided with a large truck in central Florida.

Truck driver Joshua Martinez told Polk County Sheriff’s officials he saw the dirt bike on the grass shoulder of the road Friday afternoon and as he drove past the intersection the teen struck the truck’s rear wheels.

Cory Flemming, Jr. sustained serious injuries and died at the scene.

The area is an undivided two lane roadway. The intersection was closed for about three hours.

The investigation continues.
