Garrett Bryant, 23, died from injuries received from an ATV accident on Friday evening, in Marion County.

Garrett, a resident of Tracy City, was ejected from a side-by-side ATV when it flipped. Marion County Sheriff Bo Burnett stated that Bryant died immediately. His body has been taken to Nashville for an autopsy.

The driver of the ATV, Andrew Sanders, was also injured during the crash, but the sheriff says Sanders injuries were not serious.

At approximately 10:30 p.m., on Friday, Marion County deputies were dispatched to the wilderness area surrounding Pryor Ridge, near the Marion County/Grundy County line. Upon arrival, they discovered the wrecked ATV and Bryant and Sanders. Emergency medical technicians treated the young men on site. Bryant was transferred to Sewanee Hospital where he was pronounced dead. There is no word at this time where Sanders received treatment for his injuries.

Bryant leaves behind a wife, Whitney, and three children, Brooklynn, Gracelynn, and Aubreelynn.
