Worth County-

Troopers say 28-year-old Randopho Cubino was driving an all terrain vehicle on a Worth County dirt road around 4 p.m. Thursday.

He took a curve on Oak Piled Road too fast. His head hit this tree when he was thrown from the four wheeler. The man was not wearing a helmet.

"Apparently, he just had to run an errand right over here and he never got back and never got back and never got back," said Georgia State Trooper Kyle Long. "They got to worrying about him, because he was taking so long and so they came and looked for him."

The man was a Moultrie firefighter who was helping a friend with some part-time work.

There has been at least a dozen people, including children, die in ATV accidents in the last year. Five children were killed in one crash in Coffee County in September.

Because of those deaths, state Representative Chuck Sims introduced a bill early that would require drivers to wear helmets and prohibit children from driving ATV's. But that bill did not pass the house.
