MARION TWP., Pa. — An 11-year-old boy was tragically killed in a UTV accident on his family’s property Monday night, per police.
The incident occurred around 7 pm in Marion Township. Police would not confirm the victim’s identity or the exact location out of respect for the family’s privacy.
Police tell Channel 11 the boy was riding the terrain vehicle on his own and got too close to an embankment, causing him to roll on his side, with the vehicle landing on him.
He was taken to UPMC Passavant-Cranberry but did not survive.
Channel 11 has learned the young boy would have been a sixth grader in the Riverside School District this upcoming year.
Police say no criminal charges will be filed.
