A Santa Barbara man was killed in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) crash on private property in Arroyo Grande Friday evening.
A California Highway Patrol (CHP) report states the man was driving a 2014 Polaris ATV on private property near Los Berros Road and Milton Street around 10:20 p.m. with a passenger. For an unknown reason, he allowed the vehicle to drift off the eastern edge of the private driveway.
The ATV went down an embankment and crashed head-on into a tree, causing the ATV to spin into a second tree.
The 36-year-old driver from Santa Barbara died on the scene and his identity has not yet been released pending next of kin notification. The passenger, 34-year-old Brian Bullough from Seal Beach, suffered major injuries and was transported to Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria.
CHP is investigating the collision and has not yet determined whether drugs or alcohol are involved.
