RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif. – A 9-year-old girl died in what her family described as a ‘freak accident’ at a motocross track in Riverside County

Additional details about the deadly incident were not available.


“This was such a freak accident as the parent said. This is not a time to bash the track but a time to remember this little girl and support her family.
