Posted: Updated:

PARK COUNTY, Wyo. - A Texas teen died over the weekend after an ATV crash in Park County, Wyo.

Maximillian Finney, 14, of The Woodlands, Texas, was killed after the ATV he was driving tipped over and landed on top of him.

On Saturday night, emergency crews were dispatched to Squaw Creek Road in Crandall for a report of a crash.

According to a Park County Sheriff’s Office release, the teen's father owns two cabins in the area and had sent his son from one cabin to the other to let family members know that dinner was ready.

About 30 minutes later, a passerby found Finney pinned underneath the ATV.

The release states that the road was gravel surfaced, and Finney was driving too fast when the ATV began to slide. The ATV went off the side of the road, continued to slide, and eventually tipped over and landed on Finney.  

Finney was not wearing a helmet.
