MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — The Georgia State Patrol has identified a Moody Air Force Base airman who died in a vehicle accident Thursday in Lanier County.
Conner Kendall, 26, died when his ATV flipped over in a field off North Moody Drive, according to a statement from the patrol.
Kendall was part of the 723d Aircraft Maintenance Squadron.
A man who lives in a house close to the accident site heard the four-wheeler revving sometime between 11:30-11:45 a.m., Trooper Chandler Poore said. “That’s the only indication we have as to when the accident happened,” he said.
The airman had only bought the vehicle a couple of days earlier and was not an experienced four-wheeler driver, the trooper said.
“It just flipped on him,” Poore said.
The cause of the vehicle’s flipping is not known; Kendall was found pinned underneath, the statement said.
Kendall's next of kin have been notified, according to the state patrol.
