Hubbard County authorities found James David Stilwell unconscious in a ditch. Emergency personnel started CPR until the ambulance could reach the teenager. James Stilwell was later pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The children's parade at Laporte Days 2008 began Sunday with a moment of silence for the victim. The accident, which is under investigation, occurred just before midnight. The Hubbard County Sheriff's Department said the ATV ran off the road, struck a large hole, and overturned.

On Aug. 2, Carol 'Robin' Steele-Spry, 50, suffered injuries when the ATV she was driving near Lake George tumbled down a washout, throwing her and a passenger from the vehicle. She died the following day. The passenger suffered minor injuries.
