TREMONTON, Box Elder County — A 9-year-old boy was killed in an ATV accident Thursday.

The boy, whose name was not released Friday, was riding on his grandfather's Tremonton ranch near 5900 West and 10400 North about 11:15 a.m. A 16-year-old male cousin was a passenger, according to the Box Elder Sheriff's Office.

The ATV went off the edge of a 10- to 20-foot embankment, causing the boy to suffer fatal head injuries, the sheriff's office said. Neither boy was wearing a helmet.
