Florida Man Killed In 4-Wheeler Accident



A 47-year-old Florida man sustained fatal injuries on Sunday, June 16 while trail riding near the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area.
Mr. Christopher Jones of 8835 Denton Avenue, Hudson, Florida was riding a 4-wheeler on a trail near Southeast Pack Trips off the Dewey Burks Road when he apparently lost control of his vehicle while topping a hill, left the road and struck a tree, resulting in fatal injuries.
Emergency personnel responded to an E-911 call shortly after 2 p.m. but by the time they arrived at the remote location, found that Mr. Jones had already succumbed to his injuries.
The accident was investigated by Fentress County Deputy Sheriff Bradley Stephens,  along with emergency personnel from the Fentress Co. Ambulance Service, Rescue Squad, and Emergency Management Agency.
