Authorities in west central Wisconsin continue to investigate a weekend snowboarding accident that killed a nine-year-old boy.

Dylan Nerby was at his grandparents' farm in Jackson County. Authorities said his snowboard skidded onto County Trunk P in front of a van driven by a 19-year-old rural Taylor man Saturday afternoon.

Sheriff's officials say the driver stopped and agreed to be questioned.

Dylan Nerby was flown to an Eau Claire hospital where he died. He was a fourth-grader at Blair Taylor Elementary School.
