A 14-year old boy has died after an ATV accident in Boone County Friday afternoon.
It happened at about 3:30pm near the Logan County line in Ottawa. Sheriff Rodney Miller tells us Brian Michael Johnson was riding a 4-wheeler through the woods with a friend as a passenger. When they went up an embankment, Miller says the ATV flipped over backwards, throwing the passenger off and landing on top of Johnson.
Johnson was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, but the pressure of the ATV pushed his head into a rock, causing a severe head injury. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Johnson was a student at Madison Middle School in Boone County.
Johnson's passenger was not hurt in the incident.
