The six-year-old boy killed in an ATV accident near Elk Point on the weekend was from Red Deer.

Elk Point RCMP reported Monday that Hayden Shadlock, of Red Deer, was the young passenger who received fatal injuries when an ATV, operated by an adult male, was involved in a single-vehicle collision on Saturday.

The boy had been wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

It happened at 6:20 p.m. near the hamlet of Heinsburg, about 250 kilometres east of Edmonton, near the Saskatchewan border.

Shadlock was declared dead at the scene. An adult man was also injured, but not seriously, according to police.

The pair had been driving along the Iron Horse Trail, a former rail line now used by off-road vehicles.

Investigators have not released information such as the relationship between the child and the adult, or what happened to cause the crash.

The investigation is on-going.
