A 52-year-old man is dead following an all-terrain vehicle accident Sunday night in Benoit’s Cove on the province's west coast.
At approximately 11:30 p.m., the RCMP received a report of an ATV that had flipped over on a woods road in the community, about 20 kilometres west of Corner Brook. The operator of the vehicle, who was wearing a helmet, was trapped underneath the ATV and died at the scene.
The accident was discovered and reported by a passerby.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was engaged and the investigation is continuing.
