Ugh, the grammar in my thread title sucks... sorry.

Checked out the Herald. According to them, the rider of the bike went to the hospital as well.

The Patriot Ledger reports that the victim's father was riding nearby and witnessed the accident.

Or in its best possible light, if the guy on the bike was also injured, maybe he went for help while he still could before he bled out, thinking they were alone. (Reported info said the ATV rider's father was some distance back.) Just don't know.

Probably both riding illegally, AFAIK there are no public motorized use trails in Plymouth. Oh, there are and miles in the Myles (pun?) Standish State Forest there, but we haven't been allowed in there in decades. But horses are okay.
