A man was killed after his ATV rolled over on Paint Creek Road sometime overnight.

William David Turner, 59, of Pax was f0und pinned under the 4-Wheeler at 9:05 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 20. where he was pronounced dead.  Turner was last seen at around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday when he left home.  When he didn't return, his family began a search.

Witnesses said that Turner had a history of medical problems.  Sheriff Steve Kessler said that there were no indications that any other vehicles were involved in the accident.

"It appears that he just ran off of the roadway and overturned," said Kessler.  "Whether or not his medical condition had anything to do with this accident remains to be determined."

The accident is still under investigation by the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.
