Opp Youngster Dies in ATV Accident

OPP, Ala. (AP) - A weekend accident involving an all terrain vehicle accident killed an Opp boy and sent three others to the hospital.

Police were summoned to a vacant lot late Saturday afternoon after receiving a call of an overturned ATV.

A family friend identified the boy as Colby Lane Ramer, a fourth grader at South Highlands Elementary School. Ramer, along with the three other 10-year-olds, was riding a "mule-style" ATV when the accident occurred. The family friend said they believe Colby was driving and the other occupants were riding in the back when it flipped over.

Ramer was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three juveniles were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for minor injuries.
