Officials said 27-year-old Taylor Curtin of Belchertown, Massachusetts, had been camping with friends at the Rocky Mountain Terrain Park located off Winter Hill road where the crash occurred Sunday afternoon.

 

Authorities said Curtin had borrowed a friends ATV and was returning to the campsite when the ATV went airborne and struck a tree.
