A 75-year-old man is dead after the all terrain vehicle he was driving skidded off a road Sunday in Baie-Comeau, in Quebec’s Côte-Nord district.
The Sûreté du Québec was contacted at 5 p.m. concerning the incident on Scierie-des-Outardes Rd.
The man was alone on the ATV when, for a reason yet to be determined, he lost control of the vehicle. Family members accompanying him on the ride turned around to see him unconscious under the vehicle.
The man was taken to hospital, where he was declared dead. SQ accident scene experts have been assigned to the case.
