MASON COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A fatal ATV accident happened Friday morning in Letart, according to the Mason County Sheriff’s Office

The sheriff tells WSAZ.com the accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. on Lieving Road.

The person who died in the accident was 53 years old.

Matt Gregg, deputy fire chief of the New Haven Volunteer Fire Department, said by the time crews arrived, the person had already died.

“ATV riding in this in this area happens all hours of the day, so it’s not uncommon to see ATVs traveling at night,” Gregg said.

Neighbors in the area like Minnie Fowler said she’s sad a person died but isn’t surprised.

She said she hears ATVs driving throughout the night.

“They run up and down through here all hours of the night, high rate of speed and you never see a policeman out here patrolling,” she said.

We’ve asked the Mason County Sheriff’s Office for more information, but no further details have been released.
