An ATV accident on May 1, 2016, claimed the life of Andrew Kennedy, 22, a resident of Angie. A passenger on the ATV was injured and her status is not available at this time.
According to a witness, Kennedy was driving the ATV on Henry Kennedy Road in the early evening when he made a turn and the ATV flipped over, landing on top of Kennedy and his passenger. The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office received a call at 7:45 p.m. and arrived on the scene at 8:09 p.m. When officers arrived, they discovered both riders on the side of the road being treated by members of Fire District 5. Both riders were transported by Northshore EMS to local hospitals.
Deputies were unable to determine exactly how the accident occurred due to the ATV being removed from the wreck location. The investigation is ongoing and a crash scene investigator should visit the scene this week in an attempt to reconstruct the accident.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “It is so tragic for any family to lose a loved one in such a situation. We offer our sincere sympathy to the Kennedy family during this time of grief and mourning.”
