Three men were seriously injured in an ATV accident in Georgia. The accident happened on Saturday night in Forsyth County when 39-year-old Matthew Holbrook was operating an all-terrain vehicle, ATV, along Big Creek Greenway. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Department responded to the accident around midnight and discovered three men seriously injured on the ground. Their investigation determined that Holbrook was speeding and operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road. The ATV crashed through a wooden guardrail on a bridge, crashing to the ground. The Sheriff’s Department is continuing the investigation and did not release if any charges will be filed.
