COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) -

Officials have identified the woman that was killed in an ATV accident Sunday night.

Colquitt County Coroner Verlyn Brock confirmed Amber Norman, 30, died after an ATV wreck around midnight Sunday.

It happened on George Flowers Road in Colquitt County.

Only one ATV was involved.

Troopers said Norman was on her cellphone and intoxicated.

A 25-year-old woman and a 28-year-old woman were also injured and later released.

Troopers said Norman drove off the roadway and over corrected, flipping the vehicle.

"They are small, very top heavy, and overturn very easily as we have seen. They are meant to be used in certain conditions and not highway usage," said Tommy Peeples, Post Commander for GSP Post 12.

Peeples said troopers are now encouraged to start ticketing drivers who are driving ATVs on the roadways.
