BROKEN BOW, OK. – A ten-year-old boy was killed in a utility task vehicle (UTV) accident on Saturday, according to KTBS News 3.
The accident occurred just after 10:00 p.m. on the 200 block of Pine Hurst Lane, just northwest of Broken Bow. The boy was driving a Polaris Ranger with an adult passenger when the vehicle veered to the right and struck an embankment, according to sources. The UTV overturned after hitting the embankment and rolled over on the driver’s side.
The adult passenger, 55-year-old Jon Barrone, of Broken Bow, was not injured in the accident.
