Polk County sheriff: Man dead after UTV hits trees

Authorities say a man has died after their UTV crashed Sunday afternoon in Polk County, Wisconsin.

According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to a property around 4:21 p.m. for a report of a missing person. When they arrived, deputies were told the missing person, identified Tuesday morning as 77-year-old Keith Millermon of rural Amery, hadn’t returned home and was last known to be using a UTV.

Millermon’s body was found after deputies searched the property.

The sheriff’s office says he apparently lost control of the UTV and then hit some trees; however, the crash is still being investigated.
