Authorities Identify Victim of ATV Accident

ANDOVER, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities have identified the Butler County woman killed over the weekend when her ATV rolled on top of her as she fed livestock.

Deputies say 53-year-old Connie Farmer was pronounced dead on arrival at Kansas Medical Center in Andover. Authorities say she was not wearing a helmet and was working alone Saturday evening when the four-wheeler rolled onto her in a pasture.

Sheriff's Sergeant Luke Grimes says it's not clear when the accident may have happened.

The woman's death comes as Kansas officials urge safe use of ATVs. Kansas currently has no state laws that regulate ATV use, except that the vehicles must be registered. Helmets, eye protection and training courses are not required.
