Eric Luther, 43, of Victor was identified on Monday, July 8 as the man who was killed in an all-terrain vehicle accident that occurred on Thursday afternoon, July 4.

Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman said the call came in to the 9-1-1 center just before 4:30 p.m.

"We were called to the area of Gash Creek, just west of Victor," Hoffman said. "When ambulance crews along with deputies and search and rescue arrived, we found a 43 year-old male who was severely injured. He was subsequently transported via Life-Flight helicopter to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula where he succumbed to his injuries last Thursday night."

Hoffman said the accident occurred on private property.

"It appears the man lost control of the ATV while on a steep incline," Hoffman said.
