Police ID man killed after becoming pinned under ATV

GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas man is dead following an ATV accident Saturday night at a popular recreational destination in Gregg County.

Officials with the Gregg County Sheriff's office say Charles Payne, 50, of Kilgore was killed after wrecking and rolling-over his ATV at Rabbit Creek Off road Park.

The Gregg County Sheriff's Office responded to the call around 9:30 Saturday night.

Lt. Haddix says Payne was driving over an embankment when his four-wheeler overturned, pinning him underneath.

A friend of Payne's was riding nearby and witnessed the accident, but was unable to pull Payne out from underneath the vehicle.

Lt. Haddix says the incident was "just an unfortunate accident," and says the investigation is closed.
