Father dead, son OK after ATV flips on embankment

WEST LIBERTY, Ky. (AP) — A father is dead but his 5-year-old child is OK after the all-terrain vehicle they were riding flipped over.

According to Kentucky State Police, 30-year-old James Lewis, of West Liberty, was driving the ATV Saturday evening on his private property when he attempted to climb an embankment.

Lewis lost control of the ATV and both he and his son were thrown. The ATV overturned and landed on Lewis, resulting in a fatal injury. The 5-year-old suffered only minor injuries.

Neither Lewis nor his son was wearing a helmet. Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
