Cook Man Dies in Britt ATV Crash

One man was killed and another injured after they lost control of the ATV they were riding on as they were going around a curve in Britt over the weekend.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash in the 7800 block of Forest Road 257 around 11:05 Sunday night. 

They say 24-year-old Jason Triska and 23-year-old Donald Roderick were traveling westbound on Forest Road 257 when they lost control of the ATV as they were entering a curve on the road. 

Roderick was ejected from the ATV and taken by ambulance to Essentia-Health Virginia with non-life threatening injuries. 

Triska was found underneath the ATV, which overturned in the crash, and was pronounced dead on scene. 

Police say the duo were not wearing helmets, and alcohol is believed to have been a factor.

Authorities say Triska was believed to have been driving the ATV, and Roderick was the passenger, however the incident remains under investigation.
