Alberta Man Dies in ATV Accident in Covington County


By Heather VacLav

The Department of Public Safety says Christopher Adam Lambert, 34, died Saturday night from an ATV accident. At about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, officers say Lambert wrecked his 3-wheeler on a dirt road off of County Road 75 about 3 1/2 miles outside of Gantt.

According to authorities, Lambert was thrown from the ATV and the vehicle landed on him. Lambert was then transported by a helicopter medical unit to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead as a result of his injuries.

The Dept. of Public Safety is still investigating the accident, but agencies involved believe speed played a factor in the crash.
