CASTLE HAYNE, NC (WECT) - Dozens of people said their final goodbyes to a young boy who died in an ATV accident last week.

Tuesday, a memorial service was held for 12-year-old Kevin Pigott at the Coble Ward Smith Funeral Home in Wilmington.

Pigott of Castle Hayne died Friday after the all terrain vehicle he was riding crashed.

Sheriff's investigators say the boy was riding with three friends in the old Martin Marietta Quarry on Holly Shelter Road, when the ATV flipped.

When emergency crews arrived, they found the boy under the four wheeler.  They say he died from his injuries.

Investigators are looking into the case, but they say it appeared to be an accident.
