A Weimar man died Sunday after he reportedly crashed the quad he was driving. Kenneth Wright, 52, was pronounced dead at the scene after emergency responders found him at about 7:15 p.m. under his 2004 Honda Foreman ES quad off-road vehicle, according to Sgt. Pete Warmerdam with the California Highway Patrol. Warmerdam said Wright was driving at an unknown speed on Pine Cone Pete Road, a private dirt road, when, for reasons unknown, his quad swerved to the right, struck a small dirt berm and rolled over. The cause of the accident remains under investigation. ~ Jenifer Gee
