ATV crash claims life of 22-year-old Hilliard man

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a fatal ATV crash early Saturday morning, Nov. 10, in Brown Township.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office reported 22-year-old Taylor A. Pierron of Hilliard was operating an ATV in the 7900 block of Roberts Road shortly after midnight when he drove into a ditch.

Pierron and others had been riding in a field but Pierron was alone at the time of the crash.

"He was riding alone and had gone missing from (the other group). (They) went looking for him and found him," said Franklin County Sheriff's Sgt. Carl Hickey.

Pierron, a Hilliard Darby High School graduate, was transported to Grant Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1 a.m., investigators said.
