Parents of boy killed in ATV accident to find out if charges will be filed



Two parents in Salisbury are expected to find out if they will face charges for their 7-year-old’s death.

Bryce Rueger was driving an ATV outside his home on Thanksgiving Day when it flipped over and killed him.

State law said it is illegal for children younger than 8 to drive ATVs.

Some people Channel 9 spoke with said that law should be even stricter.

“The age limit should be higher, like 15, 16. A 9-year-old, an 8-year-old, that’s too small,” said grandmother Robin Allison.

Rueger’s 11-year-old cousin was also on the ATV.  His leg was seriously hurt, but he is expected to survive.

Family friends told Channel 9 the boy's father, Andy Rueger, is a crew member for NASCAR driver Ryan Newman.
