PRINCETON, Ky. — A Caldwell County teenager has died after the all-terrain vehicle that he was riding crashed.

Caldwell County Coroner Dewayne Trafford tells local media that 14-year-old Avery Warfield died from a head injury that he sustained Sunday evening.

Warfield was riding the ATV with an adult and another child in a field when the crash occurred. Trafford says the ATV may have hit a bump or a hole that caused Warfield to be thrown from the vehicle. Warfield was wearing a helmet, but still sustained a severe head injury.

The boy died at Caldwell County Medical Center. He was a freshman at Caldwell County High School.
