Family members are on record identifying the victim as Colby Schleuger. The Iowa State Patrol says an ATV being operated by the teen went into a ditch on a gravel road west of Forest City about 6 o’clock Sunday evening.
Schleuger was a freshman at Forest City High School. It’s the second fatal incident in just over two weeks in Winnebago County involving a child on such a vehicle.
Elleven-year-old Carter Trunkhill of Woden was killed in a Utility Task Vehicle rollover west of Forest City and north of Crystal Lake on April 8th.
