Evan Max, only 7 years-old, of Pompano Beach, Florida, was killed on Saturday, February 8, 2014. The wrongful death occurred after he crashed into another rider while competing in a motorcycle race in Myakka City, Florida.
Max was one of the competitors in the Buffalo Stampede Hare Scramble, which took place on a large farm in the city. The motorcycle accident occurred when Max crashed into another motorcycle being ridden by an adult volunteer. According to an accident report prepared by the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, Max was looking for another rider, while crossing the race track, and failed to see the adult’s motorcycle in front of him.
After the biker crash, the boy was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead with a fractured neck. The Florida Trail Riders Association, which sponsored the race, stated that all safety precautions were followed, and that Max’s death was the result of a tragic accident.
Max was competing in the Peewee Division of the race, which was reserved for riders ages 5-8, and was believed to have been traveling at approximately 20 MPH when he collided with the other rider.
