11-year-old Roseau boy killed in ATV crash

An 11-year-old Roseau, Minn., boy has died from injuries suffered in an all-terrain vehicle crash, according to the Roseau County Sheriff’s Department.

Dylan Thoyce Muirhead was driving the ATV on Saturday at his grandfather’s home near Salol, Minn., when the accident occurred, the department said.

Muirhead’s 14-year-old brother told authorities he saw Muirhead jump over the driveway on the ATV, and when he landed, the ATV flipped and rolled on to him.

Chief Deputy Terry Bandemer said Muirhead was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Bandemer said Muirhead suffered “internal injuries” to his torso.
