A 55-year-old man is dead following an ATV accident near Sylvan Lake.

RCMP found the ATV on its side in a ditch near Range Road 12, north of the town of Bentley, on Saturday afternoon.

The driver was located about 100 metres away.

First responders did CPR on the man. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

It’s believed the victim was wearing a helmet, but it was found a short distance away from the man.

Alcohol might have been a factor, police said.
