FLORENCE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a 6-year-old boy was killed in southeastern Indiana when he drove an all-terrain vehicle into the path of a pickup truck.

State conservation officers say Alex Scudder was hit Tuesday evening while attempting to drive across a rural road near the Switzerland County community of Florence.

Officers say the boy was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash about 30 miles southwest of Cincinnati.
