ATV driver dies after hitting tree in Napa vineyard
A man riding an all‑terrain vehicle crashed into a tree Sunday evening in a Napa Valley vineyard and later died, CHP said.
The 35‑year‑old Georgia resident was riding the 2010 Honda Rancher ATV on an asphalt roadway on Vine Cliff Vineyard grounds about 5:30 p.m., when for an unknown reason lost control and hit a tree, the CHP said.
No one saw the crash but a vineyard worker heard it and found the man unconscious with a head wound. He called for help to the Silverado Trail property.
The victim was taken to Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa and died at 6:30 p.m., CHP said. His name wasn’t released Monday morning, pending family notification.
