HATTON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have concluded their investigation into a January snowmobile crash in Grand Forks County that killed one boy and injured another, without finding answers to many questions.

The crash killed 10-year-old Mason Moen of Thompson and seriously injured 9-year-old Brody Johnson of Hatton.

WDAZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1X6NCMv ) that the Highway Patrol concluded the snowmobile was traveling at least 50 mph when it crashed and rolled in a farm field near Hatton.

Authorities have been unable to determine which boy was driving or even if they were wearing helmets because of conflicting information and the surviving boy’s inability to remember.

County State’s Attorney David Jones reviewed the case for possible criminal charges, including neglect on the part of adults who were supervising the boys. He determined the case didn’t warrant charges.
