PATERSON - Police say a Paterson man is dead after his Motocross dirt bike crashed into a car Saturday night.

They say that 27-year-old Ameem Fields wasn't wearing a helmet and the bike didn't have lights when he crashed around 9:30 p.m.

It is unclear whether the car was stopped or moving at the time of the crash.

Last June, Fields was injured and his brother, Jaquill, was killed when they were hit by a car allegedly driven by an off-duty Paterson police officer.

The officer, Jose Urena, was indicted last month on charges of knowingly leaving the scene of a fatal accident and endangering an injured victim.
