MIDDLE POINT — A 37-year-old Middle Point man was killed early Saturday morning when his ATV overturned into a ditch in a field just west of Middle Point-Wetzel Rd.
Around 1:50 a.m., Jeffrey S. Evans was riding his red Polaris Ranger four-wheeler northward in a field alongside a ditch when the right front wheel slipped over the ditch edge. The ATV was then pulled down into the ditch. It traveled 23 on the side of the ditch bank before hitting the bottom of the ditch. The ditch itself is approximately seven feet deep.
Evans was transported to Van Wert Hospital where he was pronounced dead of his injuries. The accident remains under investigation.
