Teen killed after ATV hits tree

A 17-year-old was killed after his ATV hit a tree.

The accident happened Wednesday afternoon on Press Howard Fork Road in Jackson, which is in Breathitt County.

State police say Justin C. Henson somehow lost control of his ATV, before it hit the tree.

Henson was airlifted to UK Medical Center, where he later died.

State police say since Henson was removed from the scene by medical personnel, before state police arrived, they haven't been able to determine if he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

State police say they're still investigating the crash.
