Man charged in ATV crash that left woman dead
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man has been charged in a fatal crash involving an all-terrain vehicle that overturned in a creek, authorities said.
McKinley Brown, 22, was booked into the Warren County Regional Jail on Monday on charges of manslaughter and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies responded Sunday to a call about a side-by-side that had rolled over in a creek, trapping two people underwater, the agency said in a statement. Brown had escaped by the time deputies arrived, but a female was still trapped, officials said.
A lengthy rescue was performed and the female was extricated and taken to a hospital, but was pronounced dead, the sheriff’s office said. Her name wasn’t immediately released pending notification of kin.
Online jail records don’t list an attorney for Brown.
