Fatal ATV accident west of Hymera
Sullivan County Sheriff’s dispatch was notified around 4 p.m. Saturday of a ATV accident resulting in a fatality in a wooded area west of Hymera.  
 
Upon arrival emergency crews discovered the driver had passed away as a result of his injuries. The incident appeared to be a tragic accident, with no indications of foul play. 
 
Because the accident involved an off-road vehicle, Sheriff Clark Cottom  summoned Indiana Conservation Officers, who are now the lead agency in the investigation.
  
Agencies assisting at the scene included the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department, Hymera and Shelburn town marshals, Hymera-Jackson Township Fire Department and Sullivan County Ambulance Transport.  The Sullivan County Coroner was also on the scene.   
 
Indiana Conservation Officers will release further details, including the identity of the person, at the appropriate time.
