The ATV tried to cross the road, turning in front of the second vehicle, the statement said.

The driver of the second vehicle tried to avoid a collision but could not, and that car struck the ATV, which wound up underneath a trailer the other vehicle was towing, the state patrol said.

The second vehicle wound up striking a tree.
