KINGMAN, Ariz. -- A 13-year-old Kingman boy has died in what police say was a tragic dirt bike collision.

Joshua Graffius and his 15-year-old brother were riding dirt bikes with a group of friends Sunday. Police say the elder sibling jumped his bike off a dirt berm and landed on his younger brother, who had driven in his path.

Graffius was taken to the Kingman Regional Medical Center where he died. The 15-year-old boy broke his leg.

Police spokesman Capt. Rusty Cooper said Monday that the brothers were wearing helmets and other protective gear. He says authorities are not considering criminal charges.
