A dog was an apparent passenger on the vehicle, was uninjured and released to family.

At about 11 p.m. on Saturday, May 1, 2021, a 911 call from a passerby reported the incident, which occurred on Monroe Road, near La Follette Road, in the Township of Lebanon, or about 7-8 miles northeast of Watertown.

The initial investigation indicated the UTV was northbound on Monroe Road, left the roadway on the right shoulder, and overturned in a marshy ditch immediately adjacent to the roadway and ejecting the driver.

The driver was a 60-year-old man and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man was not wearing a seatbelt, nor helmet, and alcohol use was believed to be a factor in the crash.  The roadway on which the vehicle was being operated, was open to ATV and UTV use.
