Akwesasne man dies in UTV crash

AKWESASNE – A man from Akwesasne has died after a utility terrain vehicle (UTV) crash Saturday night (Aug. 17).

The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service says 32-year-old Evan Adams died in the single vehicle crash on River Road in Snye around 6 p.m.

AMPS says their police officers tried “life saving efforts” when they arrived on scene.

Adams was taken to the Cornwall Community Hospital by the Akwesasne Mohawk Ambulance. He died of his injuries at CCH.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. No other details are being released by police.

A utility terrain vehicle (UTV) is slightly larger than an ATV and is also referred to as a side-by-side because it can seat 2-4 people, depending on the model.

Adams was the only person aboard the UTV, police said.
