BELEN, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say a 16-year-old boy has died after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a vehicle in Belen.

They say Wooley was traveling eastbound on Reinken when the car made a left turn in front of him.

Wooely was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, 33-year-old Dejohni Orndorff, was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
