(UPDATE) WILTON, Conn. – The 12-year-old Weston boy killed in a biking accident in Wilton on Monday has been identified as Joseph "A.J." Cina.

He was a student at Weston Middle School.

Original story: WILTON, Conn. – A 12-year-old boy from Weston died Monday in Wilton after he crashed his bicycle near 150 Cedar Road, police said.

The accident was reported at 4:49 p.m. Monday. Arriving police, EMS and other emergency personnel found the boy lying on the east side of the road, with severe injuries to his head and face, police said. He was attended to by Wilton EMS and transported to Norwalk Hospital, where he later died, police said.

The initial accident investigation determined that the boy was riding east on Cedar Road with two other boys from Weston, ages 12 and 13, when he lost control of his bicycle and rode off the east shoulder, police said. He then struck a slight incline along the mouth of a driveway, became airborne and was thrown over a stone wall bordering the roadway, police said.

The boy was not wearing a helmet, police said.

The accident remains under investigation by the Wilton Police Department Accident Reconstruction Team and members of the detective division. Anyone who may have seen these boys on their bicycles is asked to call Wilton police at 203-834-6260.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself, who loved us, comfort YOUR hearts, give you the courage, support and strength doing this most sorrowful time. Know that we are all thinking of you ALL and wishing you strength as you deal with so much sadness.
Today and always, may He who knows your sorrow bring peace, comfort, and healing to your soul.

This is indeed terrible, but I am glad to read that a passing car was not involved.

I've no idea who this young man is, but my heartfelt sympathies to not only his family but the 2 friends who were w/ him at the time. This is so tragic for all involved. My thoughts and prayers go out to all.

I was in the emergency room yesterday not long after this. Everyone waiting in the ER was very somber after learning what happened and understood why there was such a long wait to be seen (me included). We need to realize that while we may have an extra long wait to be tended to by medical professionals.... there could be much worse things happening.

My heart aches for the boy, his family and friends. Words cannot express my heartfelt sympathy for you all.
