YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a California man has died after an ATV accident in the Yuma desert.
Yuma County Sheriff's officials say 20-year-old Anthony Johnson of Ventura was transported to a hospital after Sunday's crash and later died from his injuries.
They say the accident occurred about 7 a.m. on State Trust Land.
Investigators say the all-terrain vehicle was traveling through the desert at a high rate of speed.
They say Johnson apparently lost control before colliding with a sand embankment and being ejected from the vehicle.
Sheriff's officials say alcohol use appears to be a factor in the fatal accident.
