10-Year-Old Dies in ATV Accident

An investigation is underway in Madison County, where a 10-year-old boy has died in an ATV crash.

Officials are still awaiting the results of an autopsy, but the Madison County Coroner says Zachary Moberly most likely died of brunt force trauma to the chest area.

The accident happened near Moore's Grocery Store just off Big Hill Road. The boy was four wheeling with his step-father and another adult male when the ATV stalled out on a steep hill and overturned on top of him.

Zach was a fourth grader at Shannon Johnson Elementary School where grief counselors were on site today.
