ATV wreck claims life of Pike County man

A Pike County man is dead after an ATV wreck that occurred late Saturday night.  Kentucky State Police reported the deceased as 53-year-old Gordon Gooslin, of McCarr.  According to KSP, Gooslin was operating a Honda ATV at an idle mine site at Phelps when the vehicle overturned, causing him to be ejected.
Gooslin was airlifted to Pikeville Medical Center, but later died of his injuries.  He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, and alcohol may have been a contributing factor.  Trooper Chase Maynard is conducting the ongoing investigation.
