Police: Young Boy Riding in Dump Truck Dies in Crash

Police in New Hampshire say a young boy riding in a dump truck has died in a crash.

Wolfeboro Police Chief Dean Rondeau tells the Union Leader he believes the truck's right tire blew out and the truck slammed into a large tree on Wednesday night. The tree fell, striking the truck and knocking it on its side.

"A sad situation all around," Rondeau said, according to the newspaper.

Police said the boy was under age 12. He died at the scene. His name hasn't been released pending notification of next of kin.

The driver was hospitalized with injuries.
