Monkton man killed in ATV crash in Lincoln

LINCOLN — The Vermont State Police say a Monkton man died Sunday morning in a crash involving his all-terrain vehicle.
On Sunday, Aug. 26, around 11:25 a.m., state police were notified that an ATV had crashed on Elder Hill Road near Quaker Street in Lincoln.
A preliminary investigation indicated that Troy Gadue, 56, of Monkton was driving the Honda Fourtrax ATV southbound on Elder Road when the vehicle left the roadway and struck several trees causing blunt force trauma to the right side of his head and torso. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said they found Gadue not wearing a helmet.
Although police say speed does not appear to be a contributing factor in the crash, intoxicants may have played a role in the crash.
The crash is still under investigation.
Vermont State Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash, or who had contact with Troy Gadue on Aug. 25 or 26, to contact the New Haven barracks at (802) 388-4919.
