ATV Crash Death

Police say a central Indiana man has died after suffering head injuries when he was thrown from a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle he was driving.

State conservation officers say 49-year-old John Flaurr of Crawfordsville died Tuesday at an Indianapolis hospital. He wasn't wearing a helmet when he lost control of the ATV and his head hit a tree Saturday near the Montgomery County town of Darlington.

Investigators say they were told it was the first time Flaurr had operated the ATV. Police say alcohol might have been a factor in the crash, but that investigators are awaiting test results.
