MANLIUS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Prosecutors will be asked to determine whether charges should be brought after a sled pulled by an SUV crashed into a tree in western Michigan, killing a 15-year-old boy.

The Allegan County sheriff’s department says the sled carrying the boy was being pulled Saturday in his family’s yard in Manilus Township near Hamilton, about 45 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.

The victim is Mason Dykstra. The SUV was driven by a 19-year-old man.

The sheriff’s department says the boy was conscious after the crash and complained of some pain. He was treated by EMS and transported via helicopter to a Grand Rapids hospital. During the flight his condition worsened and he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The department says Monday the death is under investigation.
