PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Randolph man has been charged in connection with a dirt bike accident in Plymouth that took the life of a 14-year-old boy.
Authorities say 40-year-old Christopher Kelly is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Plymouth District Court on a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of a recreational vehicle accident with personal injury.
Police say James Ward Jr., a freshman at Plymouth North High School, was killed on Dec. 9 when he and Kelly collided head on.
Authorities say Kelly, who was hurt, left the scene.
The Enterprise (http://bit.ly/ZxppSA ) reports that the misdemeanor charge carries no jail time. If convicted, Kelly faces a fine of up to $1,000 and the loss of his license for one year.
Environmental police filed a criminal complaint against Kelly on April 17.
