Wardens tell us that Dillan Shink of Wilton was riding with his uncle when the ATV flipped over and pinned the young boy underneath the vehicle.The boy was pronounced dead at Central Maine Medical Center.
The uncle, Eric Wetherell (27) of Lewiston, was not injured. However, he was arrested after the crash on an outstanding warrant for ‘failing to show for sentencing’ on a previous drunk driving charge.
Officials believe that alcohol was a factor in Fridays accident. Wetherell did take a blood alcohol test but the results have not yet been released. He is being held at the Androscoggin county jail.
