Law enforcement officials say last night’s ATV crash victim and passenger may not have been wearing protective equipment.
A 16-year-old Chattooga County male, Danny Tyler Corn, died around 7:30 p.m. Saturday due to the crash.
Georgia State Patrol’s Communication Officer Joseph Swords says the 16-year-old and a 14-year-old passenger were traveling west off Holland Chattoogaville Road and onto Ga. 114.
The 16-year-old lost control of the Honda TRX300 ATV (four-wheeler), side-swiped a parked car, struck a mailbox and then collided head-on with a tree. Both were ejected.
The 16-year-old’s body was sent to Georgia’s GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta. Mason’s Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
The 14-year-old was flown to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga and is in stable condition.
The other was pronounced dead at the EMS landing zone and was never put aboard a helicopter.
