Man Visiting Eastern Kentucky Dies In ATV Crash

An Ohio man is dead after a violent ATV crash in Laurel County.

The Laurel County Coroner says Greg White was in the area visiting relatives.

White was going around a curve on Alsip Road near Laurel Lake when his ATV overturned, killing white.

The coroner says white was riding alone at the time and wasn't wearing a helmet.

Authorities tell WYMT they believe alcohol may be a contributing factor to the crash.

    The man who died on the atv was my cousin and he was a wonderful man. He was no tourist to this area he was there at his second home. What happened to him was a accident.

    You all know nothing about my father or his experiences. My father basically lived in Kentucky and owned a home there. It was an accident and I lost an amazing father because of it.

    Old Charles of Lost creek needs to learn to research before he speaks about certain issues. Infact, there are laws about who operates ATVs and where they are aloud. KRS 189.515(1) violation code number 00250 states there are to be no ATVs operated on kentucky roadways. Charles, please feel free to read a book sometime.

    See, you don't have to BE from Eastern KY to die while operating an ATV; you only have to be IN Eastern KY. He must have drank the water.
