Peter Lenz of Vancouver, Wash., fell off his bike during the warmup lap for the day’s first race at Indianapolis and was run over by another motorcycle, driven by a 12-year-old.

County coroner says the death of a 13-year-old motorcycle rider at Indianapolis Motor Speedway cast a shadow over Sunday’s races at the historic track and prompted mourning competitors to defend the development system for the dangerous circuit.
13-year old motorcycle racer Peter Lenz has sustained what are being called “traumatic” injuries following a very serious accident today at Indianapolis.
The Marion County coroner’s office said Lenz died from blunt force trauma. More details could be released Monday following an autopsy on the youngest driver or rider ever killed at the 101-year-old speedway.
“Peter passed away early this morning when he was apparently struck by another rider,” read a posting on Lenz’s Facebook page, which was signed “Dad.”
