The prosecutor of Rimini has reportedly launched an investigation into the death of Shoya Tomizawa following the Moto2 Grand Prix at Misano.

According to the Italian ANSA news agency, Paolo Giovagnoli will begin an inquest into the 19-year-old's tragic death in a move that could also see criminal charges being brought.

Tomizawa crashed on lap 12 of the race into the path of Alex de Angelis and Scott Redding, but the race was not stopped as track marshals swiftly stretchered him off the circuit.

However, Tomizawa was then accidentally dropped by a marshal when they stumbled whilst carrying through the gravel.

With an impending autopsy set to reveal exactly what contributed to his death, ANSA says Giovagnoli is considering bringing charges to individuals that are yet to be identified.

The news comes after MotoGP officials defended the decision not to stop the race to allow Tomizawa to receive treatment at the track, claiming they were better equipped to deal with his serious injuries behind the scenes.

Misano Moto2 Fatal Crash: Redding Report

Moto2 Fatal Crash Update

One of the other riders involved in the Moto2 fatal crash at Misano that claimed the life of Japan's Shoya Tomizawa escaped serious injuries.

Scott Redding, 17, of Gloucestershire, Britain, first struck Tomizawa, and then was thrown over 100 meters down one of the fastest sections of Misano where the accident occurred, a straight where riders hit over 140 mph.

The Marc VDS Racing Team rider Redding needed lengthy treatment at Misano's medical center, and first feared a broken pelvis from the motorcycle crash. Redding escaped with stitches to a gash on his lower back, but his biggest pain came from learning of Tomizawa's death.

Redding's father, Adrian, told Gloucestershire media that his son doesn't know if he will return to racing due to the horrific fatality. Adrian told the media "it is early" and "we'll have to wait and see" the decision of Scott, who was called Gloucestershire's answer to Valentino Rossi.

Also commenting was the Marc VDS Racing Team boss, Marc Van der Straten.

Marc Van der Straten says: "Scott's crash was a big one, so we are thankful that the only injury he sustained was a minor laceration on his back. We were deeply saddened by the news that Shoya Tomizawa succumbed to the injuries sustained in a crash during the Moto2 race."

"He was a respected rival and will be sorely missed in the paddock. Like everyoe in the Marc VDS Racing Team, my thoughts are with his family and friends at this time."

The fatal motorcycle crash occurred with Tomizawa lost control of his Suter MMX Moto2 bike on lap 12. He went down, and was first struck by Alex de Angelis, then Redding. The FIM says both Redding and de Angelis had no chance to take evasive action to miss Tomizawa considering the speeds the riders were traveling.

Tomizawa later died in a Riccione Hospital as a result of sever head, chest and abdominal trauma

What a total bummer. After watching Shoya win the inaugural Moto2 race I was convinced he'd be Moto2 champ in 2010. RIP

Cant blame the guy if he doesnt race again. Pretty shocking thing to hit someone. I have run someone over before and it can be traumatic.

This is really sad, this just shows how brave these young men are when they push their bikes and lives to the limit. As a kid I thought these guys were invincible, it's a shame when you realize they're not. RIP!
