All-Terrain Vehicle Overturns on Morongo Indian Reservation Killing a 16-Year-Old Boy
BANNING, CA (June 14, 2019) – A male teen was killed following an ATV crash early Friday morning in Banning.
The crash happened around 1:20 a.m. at the intersection of Morongo and Potrero roads.
According to the California Highway Patrol, an all- terrain vehicle was traveling southbound on Potrero Road when the driver attempted to negotiate a turn, but was unable to maintain control. The quad overturned on the Morongo Indian Reservation, ejecting both the driver and passenger.
Paramedics reached the remote location a short time later and pronounced the passenger dead at the scene. He was later identified as a 16-year-old Prince Waters of Cabazon.
The driver was hospitalized in an unknown condition.
Both were not wearing a helmet, CHP officials said.
It was unclear why the teenagers were riding in the middle of the night.
The crash remains under investigation.
