An ATV accident Saturday afternoon has taken the life of a 10 year old boy. The Lee County coroner says Josh Evans of Salem died instantly from massive head injury.
The accident happened at a friend's home on Highway 280 around 4:30 PM Saturday.
The coroner says it appears the child was alone on the ATV. He says Evans apparently looked away from his direction of travel and the vehicle struck a utility pole guide wire.
The ATV ran up the wire and then flipped on its side and landed on top of the boy.
