On Sunday, September 17, at approximately 7:08pm, multiple emergency responders from Ellis County rushed to the scene of a significant collision involving an ATV at the intersection of Boz Road and Greathouse Road, located to the southwest of Waxahachie.

According to information provided by DPS troopers, a Polaris ATV carrying four young individuals was headed westward on Boz Road when it failed to adhere to a stop sign. Tragically, a pickup truck traveling northward on Greathouse Road collided with the ATV at the intersection.

The ATV was under the control of a 16-year-old female driver who sustained injuries and was subsequently transported to a Dallas hospital for medical treatment. One of the passengers, a 12-year-old boy, was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

All individuals involved in the ATV accident were residents of the Waxahachie area.

The occupants of the pickup truck, a couple, were also injured in the collision and were subsequently transported to a nearby hospital for medical attention.

The investigation into this crash is ongoing.
