The Huron County Sheriff’s Office has released more information about a weekend ATV crash that killed a young boy.
Six-year-old Lincoln Gilbert of New London died Saturday afternoon, a short time after the accident on a trail near Prairie Road in Bellevue. According to chief deputy Ted Patrick, the boy was driving a four-wheel ATV, with a 17-year-old boy sitting in the passenger seat. The ATV rolled on top of Gilbert, after the two went around a curve. He was taken to The Bellevue Hospital, where he died of injuries suffered in the crash. The teen was not hurt.
Patrick said a crash reconstructionist from the state highway patrol has been called in, in hopes of learning more about the accident. Gilbert was a first grader at Immaculate Conception School.
