FRANKLIN COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - A man dies after flipping his ATV early Saturday Morning.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff's department, the wreck happened just before 1:30a.m. on Mulkeytown Road just north of Switchback road.

The man eventually died at the hospital.

Captain Don Jones says investigators believe alcohol was involved in the wreck but they are waiting on toxicology results to come back before they know for sure.
