Kimball man killed in ATV accident

The body of Stephen Berscheid was found early Wednesday morning, April 27, next to an ATV on 677th Avenue in Watkins. Someone driving along 677th Avenue spotted the crashed ATV at 3:47 a.m. Meeker County deputies and the Watkins Ambulance responded to the scene but Berscheid was already deceased and the county coroner was called.

Investigation determined that Berscheid was traveling eastbound on 395th Street. Tracks indicate that he attempted to turn northbound onto 677th Avenue but the ATV lost control, rolled over, and came to a stop on the roadway with Berscheid lying on the ground nearby. The investigation is continuing.
