A 49-year-old Rhinelander man has died after an ATV accident on Saturday.

According to a news release, the man was driving the ATV near County Road B northeast of Tomahawk when he lost control and struck a tree.

The man was wearing a helmet, but it was not properly secured. Speed is believed to be a factor.

Alcohol is not a factor in the crash. The man's name will be released later this day.
