HIBBING, Minn. (AP) — A 40-year-old Hibbing man has been killed in an early-morning ATV accident that left a passenger with serious injuries.

The St. Louis County sheriff's office has identified the victim as Cory Mayer.

Authorities say Mayer was riding the ATV Sunday about 3 a.m. with 30-year-old Lianna Cimperman, also of Hibbing.

When they hadn't returned by 6 a.m. a friend went to look for them. The friend came upon the accident scene, where Mayer's ATV had left the road.

Mayer was pronounced dead at the scene. The Duluth News Tribune says Cimperman suffered unspecified injuries.

Authorities suspect that alcohol contributed to the crash.
