ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A man was killed Saturday night in Dougherty County when the ATV he was riding struck a wire cable around 9:30 p.m. in the Chickasawhatchee Wildlife Preserve Area where finding the victim proved difficult for search crews.
The big issue here is the size of this land. It stretches 19,000 acres through Dougherty, Baker, and Calhoun counties.
WALB News Tens Tayleigh Davis spoke to a DNR Ranger who helped EMS crews and police find the victim. He tells us navigating through dirt roads in the pitch black with very little cell phone service only made matters worse.
The Department of Natural Resources helped direct EMS crews to the intersection at Flag Loop road I and the Hewitt Plantation Boundary line where they found 39-year-old David Etheridge on the ground. Police say he was driving north east toward the Chickasawhatchee Wildlife Preserve just after 10 p.m. Saturday.
After he hit the cable, police say Etheridge continued about 50 feet where he fell off. Officers say he was not alive when EMS crews arrived. A sign marks the line between the wild life area and private property to the south..
"The county lines are not clearly marked so it made it tough to decide which agency should respond at first,"said DNR Ranger, Danny Bishop.
Bishop says Etheridge was with other people. Either a family member or friend called police when he wrecked -about six miles deep in the woods off the entrance on Leary road.
In the 28 years Bishop has worked with DNR he says he's had some injuries but never a death out here.
