The 4-wheeler continued off the road down into a ditch, where it hit several small trees, then hit the west bank of the ditch. LeDuff and his daughter were ejected from the vehicle on impact. LeDuff was pronounced dead on the scene. His daughter was transported to a local hospital by EMS, where she was admitted for treatment of her injuries. EBRSO officials say the daughter is stable and did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
