SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a 17-year-old boy has died after he was hit by a tree as he cleared a path for a four-wheeler. 

The Spartanburg County Coroner's Office said Daniel Prokhor was hit by the tree around 2:30 p.m. Saturday and died at the hospital from head injuries about an hour later. 

Investigators say Prokhor was part of a group cutting down trees for a trail in the northern part of the county near Campobello.
