LYMAN, Wash. (AP) - In a story July 19 about a fatal dune buggy crash, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the driver was not wearing a seatbelt. The driver was wearing a five-point harness.

A corrected version of the story is below:

54-year-old Oak Harbor man killed in dune buggy crash

54-year-old Oak Harbor man killed in dune buggy crash

LYMAN, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says a 54-year-old Oak Harbor man was killed in dune buggy crash east of Sedro-Woolley, Washington, on Saturday afternoon.

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/pODuDj ) the crash happened on a Forest Service road just south of Lyman in Skagit County.

Neil A. Petkow of Oak Harbor was dead at the scene.

Troopers say a preliminary investigation found that Petkow was heading down the logging road when he cornered too fast, rolled down an embankment and slammed into a tree.

Petkow was wearing a five-point harness and alcohol or drugs were not a factor in the crash.
