BROWNSVILLE (KDKA) — A man was killed in an ATV crash early Wednesday morning in Fayette County.
The crash happened around 4 a.m. at the intersection of Market and Spring Streets.
Debris from the crash and markings made by police investigators could be seen on the sidewalk.
The victim has been identified him as James Close.
His girlfriend, who was too emotional to go on camera, shared not only his picture with KDKA, but also details about Close. Like how he was an avid ATV rider, had a baby just three months ago and would’ve turned 35-years-old tomorrow.
