A woman is dead following an apparent ATV accident in the Town of Westmoreland.

Officials say deputies responded to an address on Skinner Road at approximately 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Sheriff Rob Maciol says upon arrival, deputies and fire department personnel located a deceased 72-year-old woman.

At this time the investigation is ongoing and officials will not release the identity of the woman until her family is notified.
