Authorities say a 16-year-old boy has died after an accident on an all-terrain vehicle in central Ohio.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said Zackery Jungling was critically injured in the Monday night crash in Muskingum County and died later at a hospital.

The patrol said it happened when the ATV ridden by Jungling, who lived in Frazeysburg, crashed into the back of another ATV that had stopped at an intersection. Jungling's 19-year-old passenger also was ejected but wasn't seriously hurt.

Family and friends described Jungling -who would have been a high school senior in the fall – as a good, helpful kid who loved his family and enjoyed  hunting and riding his ATV.
