GREAT FALLS — Authorities said an 8-year-old boy died Dec. 31 after he crashed a dirt bike into an 18-wheeler on S.C. 97 in Chester County.

S.C. Highway Patrol Trooper Billy Elder said the boy was driving a 2008 BAGA motorcycle type dirt bike on private property around 4:45 p.m. when he veered on to S.C. 97 and was hit by a 1994 International truck headed east.

The youth was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver, a 26-year-old Lancaster man, was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
