Teenager Killed in ATV Crash
State Police are investigating an ATV crash that killed a 13-year-old Jeanerette boy Friday night.
Officials say Benjamin Oliver was driving the vehicle on the U.S. 90 Frontage Rd. in Iberia Parish. He apparently drove through the median onto the main highway, was struck by an SUV, and was thrown from the all-terrain vehicle. He was transported to a local hospital where he died. The driver of the SUV driver was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Trooper say the 13-year-old was not wearing a helmet. State law does require ATV rider to wear helmets.
