Update [December 12, 2013]: Russell Anthony Leone, 11, was identified as the young boy who was killed in this accident.
Logan Township, NJ — A young boy, 11, was killed near Bridgeport on Tuesday afternoon (December 10, 2013) after a fatal accident involving a dump truck and an ATV. Police said that four children were using an ATV to pull a sled when the ATV was hit by a dump truck using a snow plow on Oak Grove Road.
The 11-year old boy was driving the ATV with a 13-year old girl riding as passenger. Two other girls, 12 and 13, were on the sled being pulled by the ATV when the accident happened.
It appears that neither the truck driver, 46-year old Michael McCann, nor the young girls were injured by the accident. Police continue to investigate the matter, but suspect that the ATV may have pulled out of a wooded area onto the roadway when the collision happened.
No names are being released, but all the children involved were Logan Elementary School students.
