An early Wednesday morning crash on Highway 60 in Borden ended in tragedy, claiming the life of 6-year old Ayden Roberts.

Roberts is the brother of a Borden toddler, William Roberts, who was found dead in the creek behind his home after a long search in January.

Wednesday's accident happened on Roy J. Lane near Deam Lake just after 8 a.m., according to Clark County Sheriff's Department Captain Scottie Maples.

Peter Roberts was driving a white Chevy Impala that went off the road and into a ditch. Maples said it appears Roberts over-corrected and ended up in the lane with on-coming traffic.

Two other cars were also involved in the accident. Ayden Roberts was taken to Norton Children's Hospital and was pronounced dead.

Peter Roberts and three others were taken transported to local hospitals, but none of their injuries were considered to be life-threatening.

Highway 60 was closed to traffic for more than four hours and didn't fully re-open until just after 12:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
