12-Year-Old Dies in ATV Crash

A 12-year-old boy is dead after an ATV accident in Alger County.

State Police from the Munising Post aren’t releasing his name due to his age.

But they say he was from downstate Pinckney.

The accident happened a little before 6:30 last night on private land off of Biekkola Road in Rock River Township.

Police say the boy lost control of the ATV he was driving, and it rolled over on top of him.

He died from his injuries at Marquette General Hospital.

The boy was not wearing a helmet.

Troopers say his inexperience with driving was a factor in the crash.
