A 13-year-old boy from Arborfield is dead after his ATV rolled last night.

RCMP say the accident happened around 7 p.m. CST when the teen was driving through a field separating his home and his grandparent's farm.

RCMP say it was a familiar route and the boy went between two fenceposts that usually had barbed wire flat on the ground. But this time the wire had not been dropped and it snagged the ATV and rolled it.

The boy died on the way to hospital.

His name is not being released at request of the family.
