Officials say a southwestern Pennsylvania toddler is dead after a dirt bike he was riding on crashed into another vehicle over the weekend.

The Fayette County coroner's office says 2-year-old Ryan Metz was wearing no protective equipment at the time of the crash Friday night in Point Marion. Metz was riding on the lap of a 17-year-old when the dirt bike crashed into the side of a sport utility vehicle.

The dirt bike's driver was treated for head injuries. Police say he'd failed to stop at an intersection immediately before the crash.

Metz would have turned 3 on Tuesday.
