State police investigate ATV crash that killed AuSable Forks man

BLACK BROOK (AP) — State police say an all-terrain accident in the Adirondacks has claimed the life of a northern New York man.

Radio station WIRY in Plattsburgh reports troopers say they found the injured man around 9 p.m. Tuesday on a road in the Clinton County town of Black Brook, in the Adirondack Park’s northeast corner. He has been identified as 55-year-old Michael Bombard of AuSable Forks.

Emergency crews treated him at the scene before taking him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Troopers say Bombard was driving an ATV when it left the road and went into a ditch before hitting a tree. Bombard was ejected and landed about 10 feet from the vehicle.

Police say their investigation is continuing.
