A man who deputies say was not wearing a helmet was killed when his all-terrain vehicle crashed this weekend.

It happened Friday night on Bush Road in the Seneca Nation of Indians near Gowanda. The Erie County Sheriff's Office says Lewi Twoguns, 27, was heading west when he went off the road and crashed into a utility pole. Twoguns was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators say high speed was also a factor in the deadly crash.
