Virden RCMP say a teen is dead after he accidentally rolled his ATV over a sharp drop in a gravel pit.

RCMP said they were called to the scene just west of Elkhorn in the RM of Wallace-Woodworth Thursday at about 5:35 p.m.

The boy was riding in the pit with two others when he went over a gravel pile, not aware of the steep drop on the other side. The ATV rolled. The boy, 14, was wearing a helmet.

He was taken to hospital, but later died.

The Elkhorn Community School Trauma team has been activated and will be offering services to the students and community members involved.

RCMP continue to investigate.
