A 12-year-old boy is dead and his 15-year-old sister is critically injured following an all-terrain vehicle accident Sunday afternoon.
Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker said the one-vehicle accident took place on Bistineau Terrace Road near Grant Circle, south of Doyline.
“There were two people on the side-by-side,” Parker said. “The sister was driving and her brother, the passenger, was ejected off the side-by-side and is deceased.”
An ambulance was on the scene, giving aid to the female.
By 4 p.m. Sunday, Parker said the investigation is ongoing. “We do not know why the ATV left the roadway and went into the ditch area,” he said. Next of kin have been notified, but names are not being released at this time.
