A man died and a woman went to the hospital after a weekend ATV crash in Lincoln County.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says they got a report of the crash around 8:00 Saturday night.

Both the Lincoln and Oneida County Sheriff’s Offices responded to the scene on a public ATV trail south of Pine Lake Road in the Town of Harrison.

A 58-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman were on the machine when it crashed on a curve.

The man was dead at the scene, and the woman was taken to the hospital.

Neither person was wearing a helmet.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says alcohol and speed appear to be factors in the crash.
