The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating an ATV accident Sunday afternoon which resulted in a boy’s death.

DPS Sgt. Kyle Bradford Wednesday reported Highway Patrol Troopers were called at around 1:30 p.m. Sunday to a single vehicle crash on Hunt County Road 2740.

“Preliminary investigation indicates a Can Am side-by-side was traveling east on CR 2740 when, for an as yet undetermined reason, the 12-year-old operator lost control and over corrected,” Bradford said. “The side-by side overturned causing the death of an 11-year-old passenger.”

The 11-year-old died at the scene. The 12-year-old sustained unknown injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

“The crash is under investigation and no additional information is currently available,” Bradford said.
