Howell Township — Authorities say a 13-year-old boy has died after an off-road vehicle crash at a golf course in Livingston County.

The sheriff’s department says a 28-year-old Howell man was operating the ORV at Hawk Meadows Golf Course in Howell Township on Saturday when it overturned, ejecting the boy. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was injured.

The sheriff’s department didn’t release the name of the boy, who media reports say was an eighth-grader at Highlander Way Middle School.

School officials say counselors will be available for students.

Injuries to the man were described as non-life-threatening. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
