A 28-year-old Bartow County man was killed Sunday while driving a Yamaha ATV, officials said.
Cassidy Cowart of Cartersville failed to negotiate a turn on Hamilton Crossing Road about 1 a.m., according to a Georgia State Patrol crash report.
Cowart was not wearing a helmet when he was ejected from the ATV, the report states. After Cowart landed in a ditch, his ATV traveled another 48 feet before stopping.
