Fatal Snowmobile Crash

By  | 

A 14-year Highlands Ranch boy is dead after the snowmobile he was driving hit a tree.

Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson says the boy was on Vail Pass when the accident occurred late Sunday morning. He was staying in Vail with his family for the weekend.

Richardson says the boy was wearing a helmet with goggles. She says he died from a head injury.

The coroner's office hasn't released the boy's name because of his age.
