Illinois Boy Dies after ATV Accident in Missouri

POTOSI, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old Illinois boy was killed and his parents were injured when their all-terrain vehicle crashed in eastern Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Aiden Whitehead of Granite City died at a hospital after the accident Saturday night in Washington County, southwest of St. Louis.

His parents were treated for slight head injuries at the hospital.

The patrol says the boy’s father was driving the ATV when it went off the side of a road, overcorrected and overturned, ejecting all three occupants.
