Deputies are investigating the death of a 19-year-old who appeared to have hit a tree while riding an ATV.

Benton County deputies said it happened between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Wednesday on Botkin Road in Philomath.

Investigators said Shaquille Sayles was riding an ATV with a friend when the pair got separated. The friend returned to a home in the area and realized Sayles was not there.

The friend awoke another person and they went to look for Sayles, according to deputies. They found him on the side of Botkin Road and said it looked as if he hit a tree.

The friends took Sayles to the hospital and he was pronounced dead shortly after 6 a.m.

Deputies are investigating the crash and believe alcohol was a factor.
