Authorities continue to investigate an ATV accident that claimed the life of a nine-year-old boy.
The BC Coroners Service issued a news release stating Liam Parker Smith was operating a quad ATV on his family’s Celista property in the early morning hours of Sept. 12. He was accompanied by another boy, age 10, when the vehicle rolled, trapping them underneath.
The boys were rescued by Liam’s older brother, who brought them to their farm yard. Police said the 10-year-old sustained only minor bruising. Liam, however, was transported by air ambulance to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. He died the following day from his injuries.
