HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Officials say a 6-year-old Pennsylvania boy was struck and killed on Interstate 83 after the dirt bike he was riding traveled into oncoming traffic.

The York County Coroner’s Office says the boy was riding the dirt bike outside of a home around 5 p.m. Sunday. Officials say the boy rode into the path of a vehicle traveling northbound when he was struck.

Police say the impact knocked the boy off his bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The boy’s name is expected to be released Wednesday. An investigation is ongoing.
