VICTOR - A 43-year-old Victor man has died from injuries sustained in an ATV roll over that happened on Thursday afternoon.
Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman says 911 dispatchers took a report of an ATV accident on private property west of Victor, in the Gash Creek area, at around 4:25 p.m. on July 4.
Victor Ambulance, Victor QRU, Ravalli County Search and Rescue, and deputies from the Sheriff's Office responded to the scene, and found the victim unconscious after apparently losing control of his ATV on a steep incline.
The victim was flown to St. Patrick's Hospital by Life Flight, but Hoffman says he succumbed to his injuries on Thursday evening.
The Ravalli County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident, and the name of the victim is being withheld at this time.
