Leslie County man dies in ATV accident

The body of a Leslie County man was found Friday morning beneath his all-terrain vehicle in a ditch in a rural area of the county, Leslie County Coroner Greg Walker said.

The man was reported missing on Thursday

William Ingram, 66, apparently was driving down a steep road, and the vehicle ran off the roadway and into a deep ditch, overturning and landing on top of him, the coroner said.

"It was slick up there," Walker said. "I'm sure the weather did contribute to the accident."

An autopsy was scheduled to determine whether the accident or something else caused Ingram's death.

Ingram was last seen alive by a neighbor about 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Neighbors and others went looking for him after he did not return home. One of the search groups found his body about 6:20 a.m. Friday. He had been dead for some time, Walker said.
