SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 14-year-old boy in Utah died after an off-road vehicle he was driving rolled on top of him and he was taken to a hospital in critical condition over the weekend, officials said.
The vehicle carrying Zane McQuivey crashed and rolled in the Purple Hills area of Warner Valley outside of St. George, KUTV-TV reported Tuesday.
Utah State Parks & Recreation officials believe McQuivey was driving at slow speeds up a hill when the vehicle rolled.
The teen was flown to St. George Regional Hospital where he later died. An unidentified 38-year-old passenger was injured and is expected to recover.
The accident is under investigation.
"Zane was a kind and happy 14-year-old boy. He was an eighth-grader at Crimson Cliffs Middle School. He will be missed greatly by his family, friends, and community," the family said in a statement to the state agency.
