WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a Williston man is in critical condition after falling 50 feet from a rock ledge overlooking Interstate 89.

Family members told police that 21-year-old Tucker Austin had left the home on an ATV headed to the overlook. Police say when he didn’t return, relatives and friends became concerned and went to look for him. They say they found his ATV and cellphone and believed he had fallen off the ledge.

Police found Austin laying adjacent to the interstate around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Family and friends told police that he had been drinking before he left but said they were unsure it that contributed to his fall.

Police say Austin was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
