15-Year-Old Boy Dies In ATV Accident

GRAND RAPIDS (WWJ) – A 15-year-old boy was killed when his all-terrain vehicle flipped on a turn and landed on top of him.

The crash happened Sunday in a field in Gun Plains Township, about 35 miles south of Grand Rapids.

Family members pulled the ATV off the teen and gave him CPR, but
were unable to revive him. The sheriff’s department identifies him as Benjamin K. Selby.

Police say Selby was wearing a helmet, and family members report he was a capable ATV driver. They think he took the turn too fast.
