Posted: Updated:

Police say that a 16-year-old boy has died after an accident on an all-terrain vehicle in central Ohio.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said Zackery Jungling was critically injured in the Monday night crash in Muskingum County and died later at a hospital.

The patrol said the accident happened when the ATV driven by Jungling crashed into the back of another ATV that had stopped at an intersection. Jungling's 19-year-old passenger also was thrown but wasn't seriously hurt.

Family and friends described Jungling -who would have been a high school senior in the fall - as a good, helpful kid who loved his family and enjoyed hunting and riding his ATV.
