An all-terrain vehicle crash Saturday in Harrison County killed one man and injured another.

Christopher C. Baxter, 24, of Mount Olivet died early Sunday at Harrison Memorial Hospital, Harrison County Sheriff Bruce Hampton said.

At 9:55 p.m. Saturday, Baxter was driving the ATV on Criswell Road when he lost control on a curve, and the ATV ran through a fence topped with barbed wire.

Baxter was injured by the barbed wire, Hampton said.

A passenger, Marcus R. McCane, 21, was treated at Harrison Memorial Hospital and released, Hampton said.
