Officials with the Florida Highway and Patrol have officially released their findings on a fatal dirt bike crash that took the life of a 13-year-old boy in Boynton Beach.

Stanley Davis III is said to have been riding his dirt bike near the 800 block of North Federal Hwy on December 26th, 2021 when he was stopped by police.

Instead of stopping, the teen attempted to elude police but crashed he dirt bike.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Davis’ family has since spoken out about the incident, accusing the officer who has a history of violating rules of police pursuit, of striking the child’s bike and causing him to lose control.

In a report that came out on Thursday, FHP stated that they found Davis was driving recklessly at 85 mph on the dirt bike when he crashed and that that there was no physical contact between the child’s bike and the officer’s vehicle.

Officials say they will not press charges against the officer.

While the officer will not face any charges, Boynton Beach Police spokesperson Stephanie Slater said that the Department will conduct an internal affairs investigation to determine if any police department policies were violated by any officer involved in the incident.
