The police revealed that an 11-year-old boy was behind the wheel when he lost control of the ute because he was driving four-wheel on swamps near the city of Wyndham in the far north of the state on Saturday.

Major crash investigators traveled to the site on Monday and the police said the driver is helping them with their investigation, but no charges have been filed.
Abbey's brother, Tom Forrest, is an ABC reporter and said she would fly to Perth on Monday to begin her introduction to private school.
& # 39; Many people knew who she was and what she had done at such a young age, & # 39; he told the ABC.
& # 39; I want people to remember her personality for what she had done and the impact she had on people's lives. & # 39;
He went on to say that he could not comment on the circumstances of the crash other than that it was not unusual for children who lived in the Kimberley to become adventurous and set off for the marsh flats.
& # 39; Think about what you do, and when people do something crazy, just pull them up. Terrible things can happen and there is no turning back, & Forrest said.
The crash is one of the two deadly crashes in The Kimberley last weekend.
The police are investigating after a 19-year-old man from Kununurra hit a tree while riding a motorcycle.
