A Beattyville man was killed over the weekend in a single all-terrain vehicle crash, according to Kentucky State Police.

Christopher S. Stepp, 29, lost control of his four-wheel ATV on Caudill Road in Lee County sometime between Saturday night and about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, state police said. Stepp died at the scene, according to the Lee County coroner.

The ATV went off the road and overturned, landing on top of Stepp. Alcohol is thought to be a factor, and Stepp was not wearing a helmet, police said.
