EDMOND, Okla. - It was a morning that ended in tragedy.

Yellow tape surrounded the scene of a flipped UTV near Edmond Saturday morning.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says two boys, both 14, and a girl, 13, were riding on vehicle when the driver lost control.

"It appears they were headed east here on the county road and for whatever reason, the driver lost control of the vehicle," said Capt. Paul Timmons.

The ATV flipped and two of the teens were ejected.

Construction workers nearby heard the accident and rushed over to help one of the teens pinned underneath the vehicle.

Officials say that 14-year-old died at the scene.

Capt. Timmons says the risks can be high when it comes to terrain vehicles.

"These things are not technically street legal. They`re to be ridden off-road. It`s like anything else. You have to be really careful when you operate that type of equipment," he said.
