MILLVILLE, N.J. (AP) — State police say a dirt bike rider crashed during a race in southern New Jersey, striking and seriously injuring a spectator.

The accident occurred shortly before noon Sunday at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds in Millville.

It’s not clear what caused the crash. But authorities say the rider’s bike ended up in the spectator area and struck a woman.
