PEC woman dies in ATV mishap

A Prince Edward County woman is dead after a mishap on an all-terrain vehicle.

Provincial Police were called to Black Road in Sophiasburgh just before 6 p.m. Saturday to investigate a report of a woman unconscious in the middle of the road.

An ATV – still idling – was nearby and the woman had serious injuries.

Police later learned the woman was at a Black Road home a few minutes before and was heading to her home when, for unknown reasons, she fell from the ATV.

Police say the woman was not wearing a helmet.

She was taken to hospital in Picton, but transferred to Kingston General where she died of her injuries Sunday night.

Dead is Kathryn Richards, 61.

Police say alcohol was not a factor.
