Young Boy Killed In Quad Bike Tragedy On Rural Property
A quad bike accident has claimed the life of a young boy on the outskirts of Hobart.
The nine-year-old was riding the bike at a family member's rural property in Dixon Point Road, Sandford, when it rolled just before 2.30pm on Saturday.
Attempts to revive the boy, who was wearing a full-face helmet at the time of the crash, were unsuccessful and he died at the scene.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
