New details released about ATV crash that kills Newton County child

NEWTON COUNTY - by Steve W Stewart/KJAS & Rayburn Broadcasting Company

The Texas Department of Public Safety says a child died in an ATV accident in Newton County on Tuesday afternoon. The crash occurred shortly after 3:00 on County Road 4570, just off of Farm to Market Road 1416 in the Trout Creek Community, and it was the second ATV accident in less than a week in Newton County to claim the life of a child.

According to a report filed by Trooper Bo Clark, a 2001 Honda Rancher 4-wheeler, driven by J'colby Barnes, and occupied by three other passengers, was traveling eastbound when the rear passenger, 12-year-old Tory Doniell Foster, fell off the back.

Foster was transported by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly before 5:00 p.m.

DPS says none of the occupants of the ATV was wearing helmets.

On Thursday of last week, 14-year-old Brandon McCain died in a collision involving his ATV and a car on County Road 4067 at FM 2460, in the Bon Wier Community.
