Huron County man dies in weekend ATV crash

By  | 

HURON COUNTY (WJRT) (3/5/2018) - A Huron County man died Saturday when his ATV crashed into a driveway abutment.

Curtis D. Thrift, 54, was riding his 2013 Polaris on Sand Road about a half mile east of Oak Beach Road in Hume Township around 5:15 p.m. when he lost control on a curve and hit the driveway.

The Cotrrellville man was ejected from ATV.

A friend riding with Curtis discovered the crash about the same time a neighbor who had heard the crash ran out to help. Both attempted to begin live-saving measures, but Curtis was pronounced dead on the scene.

The Huron County Sheriff's Office believes not wearing a helmet likely contributed to Curtis' death.
