QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in western Illinois say a 12-year-old boy has died after an accident with a piece of construction equipment on his family’s property.

Adams County Coroner James Keller says Grant L. Garriga of Liberty was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon. The coroner says the boy fell off of a skid loader and died when the equipment ran over him.

Keller says the skid loader was being used to move brush when the accident happened.

Authorities are continuing to investigate.
