A young boy has died after a golf-cart crash in a gated community north of Beverly Hills Sunday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Fire Department says two men and three boys were in a modified golf cart when it overturned in Beverly Park at 57 Beverly Park. A 10-year-old boy, identified as Mark Martinez of Van Nuys, suffered a severe head injury.

He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in grave condition, where he died about two hours later. The others were also taken to the hospital to be assessed, but they did not appear to be hurt.

It's unclear what caused the accident. The incident remains under investigation.
