Updated: Two killed Monday in ATV, UTV accidents in Marshall County

Officials have released additional information on ATV and UTV accidents from Memorial Day in Marshall County that killed two people.

Coroner Kenny Pratt says 30-year old Luis Benitez of Mayfield died in a four-wheeler accident at Soldier Creek and a 51-year old man from Mayfield was killed in a UTV accident on Harrison Road, with his name not released.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office says Benitez had been attempting to climb an embankment at about 2:45 p.m. when the ATV overturned onto him and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the incident.

Both victims were taken to the Western Kentucky Regional Medical Examiner’s Office in Madisonville for autopsy.
