WINCHESTER TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal ATV crash in Adams County.

The accident occurred Thursday night just before 9 p.m. on State Route 136 near milepost 25.

Police say an ATV operated by Brian Piatt, 47, of Winchester, was traveling southbound when he lost control of his ATV and struck a guardrail. The ATV overturned, ejecting Piatt.

Piatt was transported to Adams County Regional Hospital and was later flown to University Hospital with serious head injuries. He was pronounced dead early Friday morning.

Police say Piatt was not using a helmet and that speed and alcohol could be a factor.
