HATTIESBURG, Miss. - A 3-year-old boy is dead after the ATV he was riding on with other children flipped on its side in Jones County.



The Jones County Sheriff's Department said the boy was one of three children, ages 3 to 11, riding in a four-wheel Arctic Cat Prowler driven by an 18-year-old.



Sheriff Alex Hodge said the driver lost control of the ATV around 11:30 a.m. in the Hebron community, causing it to flip over and eject the three passengers.



The other passengers suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.



The Arctic Cat Prowler is a two-seat ATV with a basket in the back.



Officials said the occupants of the ATV were observed wearing helmets prior to the accident.
