Millsboro man killed in ATV accident

The body of a Millsboro man was discovered pinned beneath his ATV in a wooded area Friday afternoon.

State Police say workers inspecting railroad tracks in the area of Robinson Way and Thorogoods Road found the deceased crushed by an All-Terrain Vehicle.

Troopers arrived on the scene at 3:52 p.m.

The victim is identified as 57-year-old Frank J. Wilkerson.

Investigators suspect Wilkerson was riding his 2012 Honda Ranger over a nearby hill when some loose rocks gave way, causing him to tumble down the hill with the ATV ultimately landing on top of him.

Police have not yet determined when the accident occurred.

The incident is still under investigation.
