An ATV operator was killed and his 10-year-old passenger injured in a crash near his home north of the Twin Cities, authorities said.

Christian J. Voight, 38, died in the wreck Saturday afternoon southeast of Princeton along County Road 5, the Isanti County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Voight was trying to make a turn but ran into trees, throwing him and his passenger from the machine, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Voight was taken by air ambulance to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, where he died that afternoon, according to the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office.

The passenger, whose identity has not been released by authorities, was treated at a hospital in Princeton and was expected to survive.

Voight’s survivors include his wife of 14 years and five children.
