Boy dies after bicycle crash in Wilton


A 12-year-old boy died in Wilton Monday evening after he lost control of his bicycle, went off the roadway and was thrown over a stone wall.

The unidentified child, who lives in Weston, was found lying in the area of 150 Cedar Rd. just before 5 p.m., police said.
