Man dies in off-road dirt bike crash in Franklin County


One man died and another was injured in an off-road crash between a dirt bike and an ATV in Franklin County Saturday.

Vincent J. Sgroi, 47, of Cuba, Mo., was fatally injured in the crash. He was taken by helicopter to Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur, where he was pronounced dead.

The other driver was identified as Keith A. Koelling, 36, of Leslie, Mo. He had minor injuries but declined treatment at the scene. 

The Missouri Highway Patrol said the two drivers were on a tractor path on private property in the 7700 block of Route CC when they crashed at 2:55 p.m. Sgroi was driving a 2000 Honda CR125R dirt bike when he struck the rear of a 2001 Yamaha 400 ATV driven by Koelling. Both vehicles overturned, ejecting the drivers.
