Police say the driver of a dirt bike was killed after the bike hit a Dodge Charger in South Fulton Sunday evening.

The incident occurred at the intersection of Sylvan Road and Dill Avenue.

The dirt bike was carrying two riders and ran a red light when they were hit, according to a spokesperson with the Atlanta Police Department. In addition to the victim, the other rider was also taken to the hospital in stable condition.

The victim was later identified as 15 year-old Quemond Barkley.

The people inside the Charger were not injured, according to the police spokesperson.

This comes after the city of South Fulton passed an ordinance last week, penalizing riders for operating dirt bikes and ATVs on city roads.
