Roy man dies after ATV accident

A 76-year-old Roy man died Tuesday after flipping his ATV while riding down the road to get his mail, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday.

Donald Jean’s wife found him about 4:50 p.m. near a tree on their property in the 34700 block of 82nd Avenue South. He was trapped beneath the ATV and was not wearing a helmet, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

An autopsy had not been completed Wednesday.

Investigators said Jean had been drinking before the accident and was taking multiple medications for health problems.
