Around 5:20 Saturday afternoon, DPS officials say a 17-year-old Hedley teen was driving an ATV west on County Road T around four and a half miles northeast of Hedley.

DPS officials say the ATV veered left towards the edge of the roadway, making contact with a raised embankment. This caused the ATV to roll over and the passenger to be ejected from the vehicle.

The passenger, identified as 21-year-old Zachary Chapman of Hedley, was pronounced dead on the scene.

The 17-year-old was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. 

DPS officials say neither the driver nor the passenger were wearing safety belts.
