Farmington – Two Fatalities In ATV Crash
Two riders died in an ATV crash in Farmington last Wednesday.
Officials have withheld the identities of two victims, a 71-year-old ATV rider and his 30-year-old son, who were involved in a crash at the Tilcon quarry along Colt Highway. According to authorities, at around 8:00 p.m., three riders on separate vehicles were negotiating a difficult section of the quarry when the two victims fell off a cliff. The third rider was not injured. Emergency responders quickly arrived, but the victims were pronounced dead at the crash site. Local police are currently investigating the incident and will release more information when appropriate.
This type of accident can be caused by different factors, and authorities will definitely study all possibilities so that accountability can be accurately assigned. There have been instances in the past where accidents were caused by faulty or defective equipment, so this possibility will also be studied. Suffice it to say, if investigators discover any form of negligence, the family of the victim (in this case) may have legal options that can be explored to help them find closure.
