ANTLERS, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says an 11-year-old boy died in an all-terrain vehicle crash on the Fourth of July.

The highway patrol says the crash happened Tuesday near Antlers, about 135 miles (217 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City.

According to a preliminary report, the boy was driving an ATV on a county road when the vehicle rolled over, pinning him underneath. The highway patrol says the boy suffered head injuries and was pronounced dead Tuesday night at a hospital.

Another 11-year-old boy who was on the ATV suffered arm and leg injuries but was treated and released from a hospital. A second passenger was not hurt.
