A Tremonton man died Sunday in an all-terrain vehicle crash in Cache County.

Cory Crump, 24, was found dead at the scene, according to a press release from the Cache County Sheriff's Office. A second man, also 24, was injured.

About 9 p.m. the office received a report of an ATV crash behind Mount Logan. Sheriff's Lt. Brian Locke said Crump was driving the Polaris Ranger RZR with bucket seats. It appears Crump was traveling too fast on a dirt road when he drove over a bump and lost control, Locke said. The ATV rolled then went down a steep embankment, hitting trees on the way, Locke said.

A helicopter flew the passenger to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden. The press release said there was evidence alcohol was involved in the crash.
