      Fatal ATV accident reported east of Edinburg

      Authorities are investigating an ATV accident that claimed the life of a 62-year-old man east of Edinburg.

      The fatal accident happened off FM 2812 and Rancho Alto Street around 4:20 p.m. Friday.

      Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) state troopers are investigating the accident.

      State troopers said Jose Garcia-Hernandez was traveling south on Rancho Alto Street at a high rate of speed.

      Garcia-Hernandez allegedly lost control and rolled over several times.

      Investigators said the 62-year-old was not wearing a helmet and that alcohol may have played a factor.
