NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP)- A man riding a dirt bike that police say had been reported stolen was seriously injured when he hit a car in Delaware.

State police said in a news release that on Tuesday night, a 21-year-old man was operating the dirt bike, which did not have lights, on a road in New Castle. Troopers say the dirt bike was speeding and cutting in and out of traffic.

Police say the dirt bike hit a car at an intersection. The impact threw the man off the bike and over the car.

The man, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. The car's driver was not hurt.

The crash is under investigation.
