16-Year-Old Boy Dies At Motocross Event Near Winchester
A 16-year-old boy has died following a collision at a moto-cross event near Winchester.
The teenager, named locally as Bradley Hooper, from Farnham, Surrey, suffered serious injuries yesterday in the accident involving another young motorcyclist at a track at Down Farm in Headbourne Worthy.
The second rider, a 15-year-old boy also from Farnham, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
A Facebook page has been set up in memory of Brad named after his race number, 23.
Steve Dixon, from Bike It Yamaha, who organises the British Grand Prix at Matterley estate near Winchester, posted:
"Such a tragedy and a huge loss for all the family of Brad, our condolences.''
