Wardens were called to Carthage about 8 p.m. Sunday following the dirt-bike accident involving a 15-year-old boy from Carthage.

The Maine Warden Service says the boy was carrying a coil of rope that became entangled in the rear wheel. He then became entangled in the rope as well, leading to his death.
