Cody Scott Bryant, of Frankfort, has been identified as the man who was killed in a utility task vehicle accident Sunday night, Franklin County Coroner Will Harrod said.

Deputies and emergency personnel were dispatched to Flat Creek Road north of Frankfort just after 11:30 p.m. where a man driving the UTV lost control.

According to the coroner’s report, it appeared the vehicle left the roadway, hit some trees and flipped.

Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said the 23-year-old was dead when they arrived at the scene.

Deputies immediately began searching for a second individual who was allegedly riding in the UTV as well and left the scene to get help, Melton said.

Nothing has been released on his whereabouts.

Alcohol is a suspected factor in the accident, and deputies are awaiting the results of a toxicology report, Melton said.
