The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a man riding a four-wheeler was hit and killed Tuesday morning.

According to a news release, it happened around 7:30 a.m. on Highway 87 near Lassiter Road.

It says the driver of the four-wheeler had been out hunting and was crossing the road when he was hit by a passing vehicle.

The driver of the four-wheeler, later identified as 66-year-old Dennis Ervin Tracy from Covington, died at the scene from his injuries.

The sheriff’s office said the unidentified driver will not be charged because the road isn’t well lit and was foggy at the time of the accident. 

They added that the driver did see the four-wheeler and tried to avoid the crash, but were unsuccessful.
