Pasco, Pinellas roadway fatalities

A 13-year-old boy from Land O’Lakes was killed Nov. 25 when the ATV he was driving collided with another ATV driven by an 11-year-old boy on a trail near 22501 State Road 52.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the teen was driving an ATV west on the trail and the 11-year-old from Knoxville, Tennessee, was traveling north. The two entered a crossing between trails at the same time at about 1:46 p.m. when the front of the teen’s ATV collided with the right side of the other boy’s.

The Pasco teen was ejected from the ATV, which overturned onto the child who suffered fatal injuries at the scene of the crash. The 11-year-old didn’t have any injuries.

Neither were wearing helmets, according to FHP.
