Wasatch County Chief Deputy Jared Rigby told ABC 4 News they boy was riding an ATV in the Clyde Creek area of the Strawberry basin when he lost control of the vehicle while making a turn on gravel.
Rigby said the ATV rolled over into a ditch and landed on top of the boy who was driving, while the other boy was thrown clear.
Rigby said that the second boy was injured and could not lift the ATV off the driver. He then ran a long distance to get help, but by the time others arrived, the ATV had been on top of the boy for some time, according to Rigby.
By the time emergency crews arrived, they could not revive the boy and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
