One dead in dirt bike crash in Cleveland's Kinsman neighborhood

CLEVELAND, Ohio - One person is dead Monday night following a crash involving a dirt bike on Cleveland's East Side, police said.

The crash happened about 7 p.m. near the intersection of East 93rd and Raymond Avenue, north of Union Avenue in the city's Kinsman neighborhood, Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said. The dirt bike rider, a male who appeared to be in his teens, was struck by a vehicle.

The dirt bike rider was taken to University Hospitals by paramedics, where he died, Ciaccia said. The victim will be publicly identified by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office once his family is notified.

The crash, which was not a hit-and-run, caused East 93rd Street to close in both directions while police processed the scene, Ciaccia said. The road had not reopened as of 9 p.m.

This post will be updated if additional details about the crash are released Monday night.
