A man is dead after being thrown from an ATV Friday evening.

Kentucky State Police say the accident happened on KY 173 at the junction of Windsor Road near Elliotville. Police say a pickup driven by Charles Howard was towing an ATV on KY 173. When Howard went to turn the ATV failed to negotiate the turn and the tow strap between the two caused it to overturn, throwing the rider.

35-year-old Adam Ray Holbrook of Rowan County was airlifted to St. Claire Medical Center where he was pronounced dead by Rowan County coroner John Northcutt.

The accident remains under investigation by the Kentucky State Police.
