LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Indiana man is dead and a child is injured after an off-road vehicle crash in Brown County, Indiana. 

Conservation Officers said it happened Saturday around 10:30 a.m. in the 3000 block of Marlett Road in Nashville, Indiana. 

According to a news release, 38-year-old Joseph Fenton was driving a 2015 Grizzly 500 eastbound on Marlett Road with a child passenger. 

Preliminary investigations and evidence on the scene indicated Fenton veered off the gravel road, causing the ORV to flip several times before landing on its side. He and the child were tossed from the ORV and were found by a family member. 

Fenton was pronounced dead at the scene and the child was airlifted to a children's hospital with a laceration to his head. 

Officers said neither Fenton or the child were wearing helmets or other safety equipment at the time of the crash. Alcohol is not believed to have played a factor.
