Bristol man killed in ATV crash on Sunday

BRISTOL — A Bristol man was killed in an ATV crash Sunday evening.

Vermont State Police said that they did not suspect alcohol to be a factor in the death of Matthew White, 54, of Bristol.

Troopers said White drove a 2020 CF Moto ATV up a hill on a dirt trail in the woods off Colin Drive (a side road off Cove Road near New Haven Mills) while marking the trail for later hunting. The ATV turned over and landed on him, police said.

Someone called the state police at 7:48 p.m. on Sept. 11 for help.

White was pronounced deceased on scene.

Troopers were assisted at the crash site by members of the Bristol Fire Department, Bristol Rescue Squad and the Bristol and Middlebury police departments. This incident remains under investigation.
