    According to Clinton County Coroner Phillip Moss, 47-year-old Kevin Simonton, of Carlyle, was on his way home just before midnight Saturday on Pollman Road near Carlyle when he crashed his ATV into a tree.

    Others who were with Simonton earlier that night took an alternative route. A passerby found Simonton and called police, said Moss, noting that speed appeared to be a factor in the accident.

    Simonton was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. He was pronounced dead at the scene from head and chest injuries.

    Simonton worked at Simonton Hardwood Lumber, his family’s sawmill and lumber company.
