MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - A man killed in an all-terrain vehicle crash in northern Wisconsin was identified Monday as 49-year-old Randy Romenesko of Rhinelander.

Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies said he was riding on a trail near Merrill on Saturday night, when his ATV veered out of control and slammed into a tree.

Officials said speed was apparently the main factor, but they’re still investigating.

He was wearing a helmet, but investigators said it was not secured properly.
