Accident kills 10-year-old son of Georgia state Senate candidate

The 10-year-old son of a Georgia Legislature candidate has died in a home accident.

Stephen Ginn, of Madison County, was killed Wednesday when the Kubota Mule utility vehicle he took for a spin after school overturned on his gravel driveway and pinned him underneath.

Stephen was found shortly before 6 p.m. by his father, state Senate candidate Frank Ginn, according to Madison County Coroner Michelle Cleveland.

Stephen, who regularly used motorized equipment on the family farm, took the Mule for a drive after school, lost control on a curve and overcorrected, causing the vehicle to overturn, Cleveland said.

Frank Ginn had served as Franklin County government manager and is a candidate to replace state Sen. Ralph Hudgens of Hull in the 47th Senate District. Hudgens is leaving the seat to run for Georgia insurance commissioner.
