WHITESBURG, Ky. (AP) – A 5-year-old boy is dead after driving a battery-powered Jeep under a trampoline at a weekend birthday party in eastern Kentucky.

The Letcher County coroner told WLEX-TV that Logan Howard died from a neck injury, asphyxiation or a combination of both on Saturday at the hospital in Whitesburg.

Officials say the child was driving the vehicle and became pinned between the trampoline frame and the toy.
