Johnson man killed in ATV wreck

An ATV accident over the weekend claimed the life of a Johnson County man. Officials with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office say 18-year-old Tyler Joseph Horn, of Boons Camp, was riding his ATV with friends on Possum Hollow at Van Lear, when he lost control of the vehicle near the top of the mountain. Investigators say the older-model ATV had mechanical issues. Horn was transported to Paul B. Hall Medical Center in Paintsville, where he was pronounced dead. Horn and his wife were expecting their first child later this year. Funeral services will be held tomorrow at Boons Camp Freewill Baptist Church.
