Default 11 yr Old Lincoln Brookens - Remembering A Rider

By staff reports, March 9, 2009
Last updated: Monday, March 9, 2009 3:47 PM EDT

An 11-year-old boy died Saturday from injuries suffered in a motorcycle race crash at Doublin Gap Motocross in Hopewell Township.

Lincoln Brookens of Wyalusing, Bradford County, died of multiple traumatic injuries, according to Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick. An autopsy was performed Monday morning. Hetrick said the death was accidental.

Emergency responders aboard a Newburg-Hopewell Volunteer Fire Co, rescue unit dispatched to the Doublin Gap track summoned a Life Lion helicopter to the scene, according to company Chief Ed Hoover.

Hoover says the boy was transported to the baseball field in Newburg, where the helicopter landed and flew the victim to Hershey Medical Center.

Cumberland County Dispatch records show the initial dispatch came at 3:02 p.m.

Hoover said there was no ambulance on standby at the race track when units from Newburg-Hopewell were summoned Saturday. A Shippensburg Area EMS ambulance was stationed at the track for Sunday’s Wyatt Barto Memorial Race — the season opener at the track just south of Newburg.

Track partner Rod Yentzer said Monday he no comment on Brookens’ death “out of respect for the family.”

He later noted that Saturday was a practice day and an ambulance typically would not be on standby then.

Val,
I did not know this young man, but came across the tragedy on the internet. Eleven years is such a young age to die. I am just sensitive in a different kind of way to parents who lose a child - regardless of how they pass, the results are the same.

I so wish that NO parent ever had to bury a child. Visualize, what a world that would be!

The reality of moving on "in and with life" after a loss like this takes years - and some never make it back. I simply want to help as many as I can - find a way to re-engage. There is no right/wrong way to grieve and recover. Parents who know the realities and have experience a loss like this can often times provide guidance. I believe that there is some "comfort" in knowing that a grieving parent is not alone in the "journey that has no rules."

I so appreciate folks who CARE enough and make a difference. Off-road Riders and On-road Riders truly make a difference and are the "finest people" I have ever had the pleasure of being associated with!

I have a strong affinity for the ATM'ers of the World!

I get all choked up every time I read/hear of something like this, I can only imagine the shear agony of a loss like this.

Unimaginable to me, as a parent, to think of losing a child at such a young age - I hope to never know such agony.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends.

I have a 2 1/2 year old and I just got him a PW50 and he is still too young to ride it but loves that thing more than anything already and I just couldnt imagine something like this happening. Just a reminder that things can happen and how dangerous it can be, even when it seems harmless. My prayers go to the family.
