An A-T-V accident in Bayfield County left one man dead and his passenger injured.

A group of four on two A-T-Vs were traveling to Iron River Saturday evening when the ATV crashed near the Town of Barksdale on Valhalla Trail.

The 31-year man died after suffering from head injuries.

His passenger was transported to Memorial Medical Center in Ashland with non-life threatening injuries.

The Sheriff's Department believes speed, alcohol and not wearing a helmet were contributing factors to the man's death.

His name has not yet been released.
