Child dies in ORV accident


 

A 12-year-old boy died last week and two 7-year-olds were injured when the ORV they were riding on rolled over.

The accident occurred on Friday, July 8, about 12:41 p.m., in Bushnell Township, in Montcalm County.

According to the Montcalm County Sheriff Department, both they and Montcalm County Emergency Services were dispatched to a young male not breathing due to an ORV rollover in the 4000 block of East Boyer Rd. CPR was performed on the 12-year-old boy, who was from Fenwick. Despite efforts from the Sheriff’s Office and rescue personnel, the boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said that a Massimo 4×4 off road vehicle was driven by the 12-year-old, with two 7-year-old passengers. The initial investigation revealed the 12-year-old was ejected when the vehicle struck a bump in the yard and overturned. One 7-year-old female passenger had jumped out prior to the vehicle overturning. The second 7-year old-male passenger rolled over with the vehicle. Both of the 7-year-old passengers sustained minor injuries.

Police said helmets were not in use, and seatbelts were available but not in use. Alcohol was not a factor.

The accident remains under investigation.
