On Monday, March 23, an ATV accident claimed the life of 19 year-old Gabriel "Gabe" Couch and injured his 13 year-old nephew Ronald "Ronnie" Wayne.

Couch's sister Melissa Couch-Wayne said her brother and son were riding on Six Mile Creek Road when the accident happened. She said they were going too fast to take a curve in the road. Couch hit a pothole which propelled the vehicle across the road where it hit a tree. Neither rider was wearing a helmet.
