A man died Monday after his ATV rolled at Sand Hollow State Park near Hurricane.

The man, in his 50s or 60s, was driving a Polaris Razor with a passenger about 4 p.m. on Sand Mountain in an area known as First Dunes, said park Manager Laura Melling.

The ATV rolled over, killing the driver and injuring the passenger, Melling said.

The passenger apparently was unconscious for a short time before he was able to call for help, Melling said.

Neither man was wearing a helmet, but the ATV has a full roll cage, she said.

Both men are from Washington County.
