On June 1, 2021, at approximately 3:45p.m. Hamden Police responded to “power line trails”, located in the vicinity of Gaylord Mountain Road and West Woods Road, on the report of an accident, involving an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV).

Moments later, Hamden Fire Department personnel located a 43-year-old male, near an unoccupied ATV. The male was deceased.

A preliminary investigation determined that the male “may have lost control, as he attempted to negotiate a turn.” He was ejected from the ATV. An autopsy will be performed today.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Nicholas Lovett of the Hamden Police Department Traffic Division at (203) 281-8218.
