53-year-old Nicholas Leidgen was westbound on Rusk Road in southern Martin County when his ATV left the road and overturned, throwing Leidgen from the vehicle.

Friends transported him to State Road 56 to meet with a Dubois County Ambulance.

He was taken to Jasper Memorial for treatment of neck and back injuries and later transferred to Saint Mary's Hospital in Evansville.

Authorities say alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in the accident and that alcohol related charges are pending.

The ATV was a total loss.
