Grayson County Sheriff’s Office investigates ATV fatality

The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Royal ATV Park in Clarkson on Saturday in response to a two-vehicle ATV crash with injuries. Investigation revealed that a group of friends were riding trails at the ATV park when they approached a right-hand curve. The operator of the first unit reported that he was traveling behind the second unit when it came to a sudden stop. The first unit collided with the bumper of the second, and continued over top of it, trapping unit two underneath and into the path of a tree. The unit two operator, 22-year-old Matthew Dillon of Bardstown, sustained severe head trauma and was transported from the scene by Grayson County EMS. He was later pronounced deceased by the Grayson County Coroner’s Office. Reportedly, no one in the group was wearing a helmet. The investigation is ongoing, but alcohol or drugs does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
