10-year-old Parker King of Jackson who was ejected from a utility vehicle Friday died from his injuries Wednesday afternoon. Parker was being treated at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Cape Girardeau County Coroner John Clifton has not received details about the cause of death, although he is hopeful to know no later than early next week. 13-year old Justice Crosnoe was driving the ATV and apparently lost control traveling down a hill and it overturned, according to preliminary accident reports. Justice was not injured. The boys had been riding along Royal Oak Drive in Cape Girardeau County. Neither boy was wearing a helmet. Parker is the son of James and Robin King. He was a student at St. Paul Lutheran School. Our deepest sympathy and prayers for the family.
