DUBLIN, GA (WALB) -

Laurens County Sheriff Bill Harrell issued a news release Tuesday, detailing charges brought against three people who were on the all terrain vehicle that 18-year-old James Bodrey of Cordele was riding when he was fatally injured.

The sheriff indicates that there were four people riding the ATV.

Here is Sheriff Harrell's news release-

On Saturday, October 21, 2012, at 0119 hours, a Laurens County Deputy & EMS were dispatched to the scene of an accident on White Road in Laurens County. 

 The Deputy determined that 18-year-old James Bodrey of Cordele fell from an all-terrain utility vehicle traveling on White Road and sustained a traumatic head injury. The vehicle was occupied by three adults and a 13-year-old driver at the time of the incident. 

Information indicates the victim fell while riding on the vehicle as it traveled along the roadway.  At this time, there is no indication that the driver's actions caused the accident.

Twenty-year-old Ryan Setliff of Thomasville, a passenger in the vehicle, was charged with underage consumption of alcohol. 

Twenty-seven-year-old Jeremy Brown of Arabi, also a passenger, was charged with allowing a minor to drive a vehicle. 

The 13-year-old faces charges of driving without a license.  Further investigation of the incident is ongoing.
