Wilmington police are investigating a wreck that killed a 34-year-old man on a dirt bike on Saturday night.
The wreck occurred at the intersection of South 10th and Castle streets just before 9 p.m., according to police spokeswoman Cathryn Lindsay.
A dirt bike and a four-wheeler were reportedly racing westbound on Castle Street at a high rate of speed without lights, Lindsay said. The dirt bike reportedly hit a Jeep Cherokee traveling east on Castle Street as it was turning north onto South 10th Street.
The man was thrown from the dirt bike and taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, where he later died.
The man who was driving the four-wheeler reportedly left the scene of the wreck when police arrived, Lindsay said. The investigation is ongoing.
