One dead after ATV accident in TomahawkSubmitted: 05/28/2016
TOMAHAWK - A 57-year-old man died after an ATV accident in Tomahawk late Saturday afternoon, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

Police think the driver was heading west on Newwood Road, just west of County Highway O, when he went off the road, hit a culvert and was thrown off the ATV.

Crews took him to Sacred Heart Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver was not wearing a helmet, and police think alcohol may have played a part in the crash.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and the DNR are still investigating.
