Adams County State's Attorney Aaron Roseland said the boy, identified by his grandfather as Dylan Jahner was riding a bike at an "unregulated intersection" in Hettinger around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when the accident occurred.

Acting as a spokesman for Adams County, Roseland told The Press Thursday afternoon that the child had died, though he recanted his statement later in the evening, saying the information he gave earlier was based on "rumors around town."

Dylan Jahner's grandmother said he was on life support Thursday evening. Jahner had recently finished the third grade at Hettinger Elementary.

Adams County Sheriff Travis Collins deferred all questions to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, which had not released any information about the accident to The Press as of 8 p.m. Thursday.
