The Mohave County Sheriff’s office has released the name of a northwest Arizona resident killed in an ATV accident southeast of Meadview on Friday, September 30. Spokeswoman Trish Carter said Gilbert Dunn, 81, Meadview, was dead at the scene of the accident just before 1:00 p.m.

Carter said Dunn was ascending about a 70% incline when the front wheels raised and his off road vehicle flipped and rolled down the hill about 100 feet, coming to rest on top of him. She said Dunn was scouting for gold prospecting locations at the time of the accident and that he was not wearing a helmet.
