An ATV accident resulted in the death of one woman in Madison County, Florida. Around 9 p.m. on Saturday night, 50-year-old Angela Darlene Gaston was operating an all-terrain, more commonly known as an ATV, when she lost control and crashed. Gaston was traveling northbound on Northeast Rocky Ford Road when she lost control of the ATV, it began to spin, and she was ejected from the vehicle. Emergency responders transported Gaston to a hospital in Tallahassee where she succumbed to her injuries. The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the accident and does not believe alcohol played a factor in the crash.
