Louisiana State Police have revised the ages and confirmed the identity of a boy killed in a utility terrain vehicle accident Sunday afternoon.
The crash claimed the life of 11-year-old Morris Naron on Plain Dealing. His 14-year-old sister was driving, according to authorities.
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.”
Troop G Public Information Officer Jonathan Odom said the boy was not wearing a seatbelt.
He said the initial investigation showed a 2011 Polaris UTV, driven by the female, traveling northbound on Grant Circle.
“As she made a left turn onto Bistineau Terrace Road, she lost control of the vehicle, causing it to overturn,” Odom said. “She was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.”
