Hamden Child Dies Following ATV Crash
A child who crashed an all terrain vehicle in Delaware County on April 21, 2015 has died as a result of head injuries.
Sheriff’s officials say 11-year-old Nicholas Dungan of Hamden passed away at Albany Medical Center April 24th.
The child suffered injuries when the ATV rolled over on him as he and his eight-year-old brother were riding on Stoddard Hollow Road near the family home.
Deputies say Dungan tried to take a right-hand turn too fast and lost control of the vehicle.
The younger brother ran home to alert authorities after the ATV rolled over into a ditch, pinning Nicholas.
