A 13-year-old Milton boy died Sunday while riding an ATV at a friend’s house near Auburn, according to the King County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies believe the teen crashed and was thrown off the ATV. He was wearing a helmet.
King County medical examiners identified the boy as Carson Styron.
Paramedics were called just before 8 p.m. to the 34200 block of 141st Place SE after Carson’s body was found near a steep ravine filled with brush, rocks and trees.
Several friends and family members had gathered Sunday at the property for a barbecue and Carson and his friends spent the day riding ATVs.
After not seeing Carson for some time, a few people went to look for him and discovered the crash site.
Paramedics pronounced Carson dead at the scene. He died of his injuries, medical examiners said.
No one saw the accident.
