A 53 year-old Cheboygan man is dead following a weekend off road vehicle (ORV) accident in Beaugrand Township.

Harley Hollopeter was found dead underneath a 2018 Arctic Cat Wildcat side by side shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday.

According to a preliminary investigation by the Michigan State Police, Hollopeter was traveling at a high rate of speed when he attempted to make a sharp turn.  The wheels of the side by side dug into the soft ground causing it to overturn.

Hollopeter was not wearing a seat belt or a helmet and was ejected from the vehicle, which was found on top of him.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.

Troopers were assisted by the Cheboygan County Sheriff’s Office, Cheboygan Life Support and Inverness Fire Department.
