SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (AP) - A 26-year-old South Hadley man was killed and a Chicopee (CHIH’-kuh-pee) woman was seriously hurt in an all-terrain vehicle crash on a wooded trail near Skinner State Park.

The victim of the Wednesday night crash was identified by the Northwestern district attorney’s office on Friday as Todd Bristol. The woman’s name has not been disclosed.

Spokeswoman Mary Carey says they were riding an ATV along the trail when it went off the path and hit several trees.

Bristol was pronounced dead at Holyoke Hospital. The 30-year-old woman was taken to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield with serious injuries.

Carey says a preliminary investigation shows that the operator lost control. The investigation is continuing.
