    Default Police: Legally Blind Man Killed While Driving ATV

    Police: Legally Blind Man Killed While Driving ATV

    POSTED: 10:49 pm EDT September 18, 2007
    UPDATED: 3:21 pm EDT September 19, 2007

    COLUMBIANA COUNTY, Ohio -- Police said a local man who was legally blind died after crashing his all-terrain vehicle in Columbiana County.

    The crash happened on Sunday evening just south of Lisbon.

    Columbiana County sheriff’s deputies said Charles Hoyle, 34, of Boardman, was socializing with friends when he made the decision that ended his life.

    Chief Deputy Allen Haueter said Hoyle was with two friends behind a home on Steubenville Pike Road when he asked one of his friends if he could ride his ATV.

    While Hoyle was considered legally blind, he did at one point have a driver’s license, but Haueter said that license expired in 2000.

    The deputy said the men helped Hoyle onto the ATV anyway and warned him to go slow, but Hoyle didn't listen.

    “When the men put Mr. Hoyle on there, he took off, full acceleration,” said Haueter. “And they were screaming at him to hold back and stop, and they couldn't catch up to him. Then he struck a smaller tree and he hit a larger one head-on.”

    Deputies said Hoyle was thrown from the ATV and died of a head injury at the scene.

    Haueter also said Hoyle's friends admitted they all had been drinking prior to the accident.

    “They advised they'd been drinking but they weren't at a point of no return,” said Haueter. "It shouldn't have happened. It's a tragic accident."

    Whats this world coming to when friends don't let Ray Charles types drive motor powered vehicles. That was always the end of the beer bust at our parties. Sad all around though. Out.

    This quote is a little off "They advised they'd been drinking but they weren't at a point of no return."

    Well, the only person that's at the point of no return is their dead friend.

    He could have used better wingmen>
