An Ohio man who was legally blind has died after crashing his all-terrain vehicle in Columbiana County. Thirty-four-year-old Charles Hoyle was with friends when he decided that he wanted to drive an ATV even though he was considered legally blind and had not had a valid driver’s license since 2000.

Hoyle’ friends helped him onto the ATV and warned him to drive slowly, but when he got on, he accelerated very fast, struck a small tree, and then hit a larger tree head-on. He was thrown from the ATV and died of a head injury at the scene. All the men had been drinking prior to the crash.
