One of the four people involved in an ATV crash on Highway 305 in McMinn County Thursday night has died, officials said this afternoon.
Zachary Schultz, 22, died today from injuries he sustained in the crash, the Tennessee Highway Patrol said in a news release.
Schultz was driving a 2003 Yamaha ATV when his vehicle hit a 2007 Honda ATV being driven by Dylan Eichenberger, 19, of Niota, Tenn., around 7 p.m.
Schultz, 20-year-old Malora Buckner and 19-year-old Chasity Grant all were airlifted to Erlanger hospital, where Buckner still is listed in critical condition, officials said.
Speed was a factor in the accident, Tennessee Highway Patrol spokeswoman Dalya Qualls said.
The investigation is ongoing.
