  • A Newark woman died in an ATV accident behind a Marion home on Monday, July 22.
    According to Wayne County sheriff’s deputies, Cody D. Poorman, 21, of Williamson Road, Marion, was driving an ATV with passenger Taylor R. Bliss, 20, of Pardy Smith Road, Newark, behind a home at 3818 Ball Road in the town of Marion. It appears the vehicle was going down a hill on the property and struck a fallen tree that was across the trail, deputies said. The ATV apparently went airborne, caused the riders to go airborne and possibly land back on the vehicle before hitting the ground.
    Poorman was transported by Walworth Town Ambulance to Strong Memorial Hospital, but hospital officials had no information available regarding his current condition. Bliss was airlifted by Mercy Flight to Strong where she later succumbed to her injuries.
    Deputies were assisted by Marion, Walworth and Williamson and Mercy Flight EMS services.
