GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) - A 12-year-old boy has died after being struck by an SUV while riding a dirt bike in northern Indiana.

Goshen police say Malachi Southern was riding the evening of June 10 when he apparently went past a stop sign and into an intersection, where he was struck.

The Goshen boy was taken to a hospital in critical condition and his obituary says he died Monday.

Malachi was to be a seventh-grader at Goshen Middle School. A post on the school’s Facebook page says he was “a bright, funny boy who was well-liked by his classmates.”

A funeral service is scheduled for next week.
