18-year-old dies in four-wheeler accident

    An 18-year-old man died Thursday after a four-wheeler he was driving slammed into a parked vehicle.
    Georgia State Patrol Cpl. Robert Balkcom said Kevion Demont Robinson 18, Swallowtail Drive, was operating a Honda 400 racing ATV “at a high rate of speed” near his home when he lost control negotiating a curve around 11:15 a.m.
    Robinson apparently ran off the road, traveled 359 feet across residential properties of neighbors and “struck a parked pickup truck head-on” hard enough to move the truck about a foot, he said.
    Robinson, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported by EMS to East Georgia Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, he said.
    The accident occurred on private property and the investigation would have normally been handled by the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department, but since the sheriff’s office was involved in a death elsewhere in the county, and since the accident involved a fatality, the Georgia State patrol was asked to conduct the investigation, Balkcom said.
