ATV wreck kills teen

August 10, 2005

FREDERICK, Md. - One teen is dead and another was being treated for his injuries Tuesday at a Baltimore hospital after a head-on ATV collision Monday night in a field behind the 4200 block of Reels Mill Road, Frederick County Sheriff's deputies said.

Benjamin M. Barr, 16, of Jefferson, Md., was pronounced dead Monday night at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center sometime after the 8:15 p.m. incident, deputies said.

The second teen, described as a 17-year-old Frederick boy, was a patient at the hospital Tuesday evening. No condition was available, since deputies didn't release his name.

The investigation into the accident revealed the boys were riding all-terrain vehicles in the field and ran into each other. The boys, both of whom were believed to be wearing helmets, were ejected from their bikes, deputies said.
