ATV crash kills Enon man


An all-terrain vehicle crash that killed a 19-year-old Enon man early Sunday is under investigation by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Ohio Department of Public Safety Investigative Unit.

According to law enforcement, Ryan C. Blair was riding an ATV through farm fields on North Enon Road near Fowler Road when the vehicle hit a fence, around 4:15 a.m., and he rolled into the road.

Blair was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the state highway patrol.

Alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, according to law enforcement.

The Greene County coroner will conduct an autopsy.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motor vehicle crashes — including ATVs — are the leading cause of death among young drivers in the United States.

Though authorities don’t know if alcohol was involved in this accident, it is a factor in many fatal crashes of drivers younger than 20. Nationwide, 25 percent of drivers between the ages of 15 and 20 who were killed in crashes had a blood alcohol concentration level of .08 or higher at the time of the crash, according to the most recent NHTSA data.
