An 11-year-old Licking County boy is dead after an accident on his bike.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Friday on Brownville Road in Franklin Township.

The Granville Post of the State Highway Patrol says Dakota Farrow of Newark was riding down a hill when he lost control of his bike in the driveway and struck the passenger side of a truck that was traveling south on Brownsville Road. The truck was driven by 59-year-old Daniel Archer of Hopewell. Dakota was taken by MedFlight to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, where he died from his injuries several hours later.

Troopers says the boy was not wearing a protective helmet. The accident remains under investigation.
