An all-terrain vehicle carrying five people crashing into a rock in Alberta, Canada has resulted in the wrongful death of a two-year-old boy from the personal injuries he received. The crash ejected all of the passengers and sent them tumbling down a steep hill.

According to police, five people were riding on the four-wheeled ATV. The vehicle is designed for only a maximum of two passengers.

The vehicle’s passengers were a two-year-old boy, a three-year-old boy, and two 12-year-old boys. The driver was a 32-year-old man.

While atop a steep hillside, one of the boys activated the vehicle’s accelerator which caused it to jump forward and down the incline, according to police. The driver failed to regain control of the ATV, which struck a rock and was sent airborne, ejecting all passengers.

All of the passengers received transport to a hospital, where the two-year-old died from the injuries he received. The others received only minor injuries. None were wearing helmets.
