An 8-year-old Malverne boy died after the ATV he was riding on crashed, overturned and pinned him underneath in upstate New York over the weekend.

New York State police said Alex Huertas was a rear-seat passenger on a 2010 Polaris Sportsman 550 ATV driven by 31-year-old Glenn Adycki of Lynbrook when the driver hit a ditch, causing the accident at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in Cochecton in Sullivan County.
