ATV Crash Kills Central Kentucky Man

Police say a man trying to get out of the rain is to blame for deadly ATV accident in Bourbon County.

Around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, a man riding an all terrain vehicle slammed into an SUV on a farm on Hutchinson Station Road.

The Bourbon County Sheriff says the ATV rider was trying get to a barn during a downpour. The man was going about 40 miles per hour with his head down and by the time he looked up it was too late.

Police say the ATV rider was thrown about 15 feet.

His name has not been released, but we're told the man worked on the farm.

    Hey Rob - We use all these articles for our soap boxes, not just the ones where people die needlessly on ATVs. We don't like drunk drivers either and we voice our opinion as well.

    If you drive anything with your head down, a crash is imminent but on a vehicle such as an ATV with no protection for your body or head (no helmet), bad results will happen. This is what, like 3 in the past two weeks?? When will the madness stop?

    MESSAGE TO ATV RIDERS: They can hurt/kill you. Cautious riding at proper speeds, off highway, looking ahead of you, with a helmet on, is strongly advised. How many more??????

    It's time to ban these vehicles. It's also time for the police to aggressively enforce arresting ANYONE driving an ATV on a paved roadway. If that were happening, we wouldn't be seeing so many of these accidents.
