A 20-year-old man died yesterday after he crashed a stolen ATV.

The Louisiana State Police reports that the crash happened on Tuesday, July 30 at roughly 6:20 p.m. We’re told the victim, Ronnie Brown, 20, of Luling, was driving the ATV near a trailer park in St. John Parish.

Officials say Brown was driving in a grassy area when he struck a support pole for a utility pole. That caused the ATV to spin out and hit a tree.

Brown was not wearing a helmet and was thrown from the vehicle. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries.

Detectives with the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office learned that the ATV was reported stolen out of St. Charles Parish.

The crash remains under investigation.
