Posted: Updated:

Midway police and the Georgia State Patrol are investigating a fatal ATV crash in Liberty County. 

Officials say shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday a school bus driver called and reported a body lying on the side of Isle of Wight Road in Midway. 

By the time police arrived, the victim, Steven Atwood, 27, of Midway, was already dead. 

Police say Atwood was traveling alone when he failed to yield for a stop sign and took a left hand turn too wide. He was thrown from his ATV and landed in a ditch that was filled with water. 

Police think the wreck occurred some time Wednesday night.

The cause of death will be released once an autopsy is complete.

The crash remains under investigation.
