An 8-year-old boy died on Sunday after crashing an ATV near Sidney.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the Sidney boy was riding an ATV on a gravel road on private property near County Road 350 and Highway 23 when the crash happened.

He lost control of the ATV and it rolled, pinning the boy underneath, the patrol said.

An ambulance took him to the Sidney Health Center and he was then flown to a Denver hospital, where he died on Sunday evening, the MHP said.

It wasn't immediately clear if the boy was wearing a helmet.

His name had not been released as of Monday morning.
