Early County -- A 12-year-old is dead after a fatal accident in Early County Friday night.

The accident happened at around 8:30 PM on Old Lucile Road about 10 miles South of Blakely.

Three juveniles were sitting in the back of a pick-up truck full of tin when some of the sheets of metal slid off. Two of the children also fell off the truck.

12-year-old Ricardo Cardenas died from the impact. The other, his 14 year-old brother, was air lifted to Doctor's Memorial hospital in Florida.

This case is still under investigation.
