UPDATE: 5-Year-Old Boy Killed In Motocross Accident In Ephrata

UPDATE: Sunday August 21, 2011 2:00PM

Grant County Press Release:

EPHRATA, Wash. - With the permission of the Grant County Coroner, Grant County Undersheriff Dave Ponozzo today identified the child who was killed Saturday August 20 after being struck by a motorcycle at Ephrata Raceway Park.
 
The victim is Kaiden R. Henley, age 5 from East Wenatchee.
 
"My heart goes out to Kaiden's family," said Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones. "My prayers are with them all and I wish them the strength to endure this incredible loss."
 
Henley was struck by a motorcycle driven by John J. Smith, 29 of East Wenatchee. Smith lost control of the motorcycle while racing on a motocross track. Smith and the motorcycle became separated and the motorcycle struck Henley who was watching the race from the track's inner field. Grant County District 13 firefighters, off-duty emergency responders who were at the track and American Medical Response paramedics tried to help Kaiden, but his injuries were too severe. Kaiden died Saturday night at Columbia Basin Hospital in Ephrata.
 
Kaiden's death appears to be the result of a terrible accident, and criminal charges are unlikely to be filed.
