---- — A New Jersey man was killed and another critically injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident on Brown Road in the town of Sherburne at 11:50 p.m. Saturday, Chenango County deputies said.

Jeremy R. Edmonds, 33, of Milford, N.J., was declared dead at the scene of undetermined injuries, deputies said in a media release issued Sunday. He was a passenger on an ATV operated by Mark A. Brong, 25, of High Bridge, N.J.

Deputies said Brong was driving south on Brown Road and lost control of the ATV, which exited the roadway and overturned, ejecting both men.

Brong was transported to St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Utica, where he was in critical condition, deputies said. 

The investigation continues, said deputies, who didn't report if the two men had been wearing helmets.

The Norwich Police Department and members of the Sherburne Emergency Squad assisted deputies.
