The race was 11 laps old when Spaniard Vinales crashed along with three other riders at turn two, forcing the director to red flag the race.
'After a serious incident during WorldSSP300 Race 1, Dean Berta Vinales has sadly succumbed to injuries,' World Superbike said in a statement.
So very sad, just 15 years old. I believe he rode for the Vinales family junior rider programme for helping young Spanish talent progress.
