TOWN OF BRADLEY, Wis. — A 60 year-old man is dead following an ATV crash June 5 in the Lincoln County town of Bradley, sheriff’s officials said.
At 8:21 p.m. police received a 911 report of an ATV crash on Park Lane, north of Thomas Road. A preliminary investigation suggests the driver of the ATV was traveling northbound on Park Lane when he missed a curve and rolled the vehicle, according to a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department news release.
The driver was ejected from the ATV and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The driver was not wearing a helmet and there were no passengers in the vehicle. Police say alcohol and speed appear to have been factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
