An 11-year-old Alabama boy died Sunday following a tragic four-wheeler crash.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office reports that Brandon Linderman, 11, of Leeds, died while driving a four-wheeler on private property.

The accident happened Sunday just before noon on Sicard Hollow Road in Jefferson County. Linderman was transported to Children’s of Alabama where he was pronounced dead at 12:29 p.m.

A fundraiser on social media has been set up to help the family pay for funeral expenses. As of Monday morning, more than $5,000 has been raised.

On the fundraising page, organizers described Linderman as a boy who loved being outside and going to work with his daddy.

“He leaves behind a loving father Jesse Linderman and wonderful mother Tiffany Montgomery, 2 sisters Gracie and Jada and a lot of aunts, uncles and cousins,” the page said. “If you ever met Brandon you would understand what a loving caring child he was. We would really appreciate any donations that you could offer. He did not have any life insurance.”

Authorities have not released additional details surrounding the accident.
