WELLINGTON, Maine — A 53-year-old Massachusetts man died Friday afternoon in an ATV accident on a marked trail in Wellington.

Andrew Callini of Haverhill, Massachusetts, was pronounced dead at the scene, Lt. Tom Ward of the Maine Warden Service said Friday evening.

Ward said that Callini was riding in a group with four other people when he failed to negotiate a curve about 2:20 p.m. and was thrown from the Honda four-wheel-drive ATV he was riding.

Callini was found by other members of his party, Ward said. His body was taken to Crosby & Neal Funeral Home in Guilford.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation, Ward said. Ward did not have information about whether Callini was wearing a helmet when the accident happened.

Ward said that Sgt. Glenn Annis, Warden Jeremy Kemp and Warden Troy Dauphinee, all of the Maine Warden Service, went to the accident scene.

“We urge all operators to ride responsibly, to wear the proper safety gear and to ride at prudent and reasonable speeds,” Ward said.
