Posted: Updated:

An Augusta County family is mourning the loss of their 10-year-old son, who died in an ATV accident. It happened just before noon Sunday, on private land along Route 340 near Dooms.

The sheriff's office says the victim was riding a four-wheeler on sloped terrain when it overturned on him. A medical examiner will try to find an exact cause of death.

The victim was a fourth-grade student at Hugh K. Cassell Elementary. The principal there has been working to inform his classmates before they return to school Tuesday.
