PALMER - A 38-year-old Palmer man died early Thursday when his all-terrain vehicle crashed, Alaska State Troopers said.

George Green was transported to Mat-Su Regional Hospital and pronounced dead.

A 17-year-old girl riding on the four-wheeler was treated for a fractured forearm and a ruptured spleen.

Troopers took the call at 1:16 a.m.

Spokeswoman Megan Peters says the ATV struck a stationary object.

The off-road crash occurred near Bodenburg Loop and Old Glenn Highway in Palmer.

Neither Green nor the teenager was wearing a helmet.
