A 35-year-old man has died after the ATV he was driving struck a tree in Anoka County on Sunday evening.

The incident was reported at 5:16 p.m. in the 6800 block of 224th Ave. NE in Linwood Township, west of Wyoming.

When deputies arrived, they gave first aid to the driver, but he later died of his injuries.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office says the ATV was traveling west on 224th Ave. NE. but left the roadway at the end of the cul-de-sac and hit a tree.

The victim was not wearing a helmet, and alcohol "may have been a contributing factor," the sheriff's office said.

The victim's identity has not yet been released.
