A 13-year old boy died in Florida Sunday after crashing his dirt bike while police were trying to pull him over for driving recklessly.
According to a Florida NBC affiliate, the boy has been identified as Stanley Davis Jr., who gained officers’ attention because he was driving erratically on Boynton Beach Boulevard. Video obtained by NBC shows Davis at a gas station and a police SUV follows him after he exits the station.
Davis lost his life several minutes later when his dirt bike hit a curb, throwing Davis from the bike into a street sign. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.

Palm Beach County Attorney Michael Pike said the minimum age to ride a dirt bike in the state is 16.
