ROANE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man died after an ATV crash in Roane County. It happened Friday afternoon along Hank Road.

Sheriff's deputies say Alfred Slack, 76, from Kanawha County died in the crash.

Slack's hunting partner told deputies they were checking out tree stands and that they split around noon. He called the sheriff's office about 5:00 p.m. after finding Slack's body.

Deputies say it appears Slack was driving up a hill, spun out and went backwards. The ATV pinned him up against a tree. He was dead when officers arrived.
