A 20-year-old man from Liverpool, N.Y., died when he drove an ATV off a cliff and fell about 20 feet at an old quarry. The man was with three friends when the accident occurred in a rugged quarry area popular with mountain bikers and ATV riders. The victim was not wearing a helmet during his drive, and witnesses told police that he had been doing donuts on the ATV when he drove off the side of the cliff and fell onto rocks.
