A 9-year-old Wortham boy was killed and his mother injured when the utility vehicle they were riding in overturned near Richland Saturday night.
First responders were called to the wreck at 11:16 p.m. on Dec. 13.
According to a Navarro DPS report, David Langley, 35, of Wortham, was driving a 2008 Kawasaki Teryke 750 UTV westbound on FM 641, about 4 miles west of Southwest County Road 2200, near Richland. Jennifer Langley, 33, of Wortham, was in the front passenger side and her son, Kenner Watson, 9, was in the rear seat.
Suddenly Langley heard a loud noise beneath the vehicle and the unit started moving side-to-side. He applied the brakes, leaving skid marks, and all three people in the UTV were ejected.
