At the time, he was on the beginner track with four other kids. Charles was on a 2009 Honda CRF50F motocross bike when he lost control, fell, and was hit by 11-year-old Skyler Primack's 2009 Honda CR150. Skyler, of Briarcliff Manor, and Charles were both wearing helmets. However, Charles suffered head trauma and was rushed to the hospital.

According to the head of the owner of the club, Mike Rio, Charles's entire family rides motocross and have been members for a long time. Rio pointed out that his business is family-oriented, keeping safety and fun paramount priorities.
