OWENTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say a 2-year-old child has died after an ATV crash in Owen County.

Media outlets report State Police say the incident happened Sunday evening.

Authorities say 27-year-old Spencer Lawson of Owenton was driving a side-by-side off-road vehicle when it overturned in the roadway. Twenty-four-year-old Cheyanne Fredrick of Corinth was a passenger in the vehicle along with the two-year-old boy.

Police say Frederick and the child were taken to the hospital, where the boy died. Authorities say Fredrick suffered serious injuries. Her condition is unknown.

Witnesses near the scene of the crash say the roads were slick and the ATV wasn’t moving fast before it overturned.

The incident remains under investigation. An autopsy for the child was scheduled and a toxicology report is pending for the driver.
