Woman dies in Lincoln County ATV accident


A woman died after an ATV crash in Lincoln County early Saturday morning.

A 38-year-old man was driving the ATV with the 51-year-old woman on a public ATV trail west of County Road B.

When the man lost control of the ATV, it hit a tree and both people were thrown from the vehicle.

The man survived with non-life threatening injuries. The woman did not.

Both were wearing helmets and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office does not believe alcohol to be a factor in the accident.
