A Walton County teenager died Sunday when he and a relative were on an ATV that overturned on a public road.
The 13-year-old who was driving may be charged, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
Troopers said the accident occurred at about 5:25 p.m. Initial reports show the driver was traveling south on Dally Trail, between Jersey and Social Circle, and turned in a cul-de-sac to continue northbound. As he maneuvered the turn, he told troopers his foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator.
That caused his Polaris Ranger ATV to overturn on its passenger side.
The 15-year-old passenger, Brandon Payton Key, of Good Hope, was partially ejected. Troopers said he died at the scene.
Walton County EMS personnel treated the driver at the scene. The driver has not been identified.
Charges are pending the outcome of an investigation by the GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team.
