An 11-year-old Kershaw County boy became the latest South Carolina child killed while riding an ATV over the weekend on a county dirt road, officials said Sunday.
Kyle Kelly, a sixth-grader at Stover Elementary School, suffered major head injuries and died at the scene Saturday after his 2004 Suzuki ATV tipped over, pinning him under the ATV, said county coroner Johnny Fellers.
Kelly was not wearing a helmet, Fellers said.
The incident happened about 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Green Hill and Whitehead roads.
Kellys ATV was going east when it steered off the road, into an embankment and overturned.
