19-year-old Bristol County teen killed in crash being remembered as “the light of the room”



A 19-year-old that was killed in a dirt bike crash this past weekend is being remembered.

At just after 10:45 p.m. on Saturday, Wareham Police received two 911 calls concerning a crash between a dirt bike and SUV in the area of 121 Marion Road.

Upon arrival, crews found two male victims unresponsive in the roadway with serious injuries.

Both victims were taken to Tobey Hospital in Wareham where they were pronounced dead.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Robert (Bobby) Stocker of Woburn and 19-year-old Brady Petrucci of Raynham were riding on a Kawasaki dirt bike when they collided with a Buick Envision.

Petrucci was a lifelong resident of Raynham and a 2021 graduate of West Bridgewater High School. He continued his education at Assumption College in Worcester where he was entering his Junior year and was a criminology major.

According to an obituary, “he was employed part-time working alongside his father in the operations of his landscape business, Turf Tech. Brady was the light of the room a loyal and kind son and friend to everyone he met. A vibrant, sociable, and caring young man, Brady loved being with his family and friends mostly.”

Raynham Giants Youth Football, which he was an alumnus, stated that during his youth football playing days, “Brady was the player who made everyone laugh. His smile was contagious. He never cared about playing time. He just loved being a member of the team. He was always a happy kid.”

A meal train fundraiser has also been organized by the community for the Petrucci family.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours on Friday evening from 4-8 p.m. in Kane Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 605 Washington Street (Rte.138) Easton. A funeral Mass will be held on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the Holy Cross Church, 225 Purchase Street, Easton. Interment will follow in Furnace Village Cemetery, Easton.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
