GARDNER, N.D. - Two Gardner, N.D., men are dead after an ATV crash.

Cass County Sheriff's Sgt. Tara Morris said deputies were dispatched to a Gardner farmhouse  at about 9:27 a.m. Thursday after a neighbor called in an ATV crash.

Two men, 52 and 49, both of Gardner, were found dead at the scene, having been killed in the crash, Morris said.

Morris said no alcohol use is suspected. She didn't know if the ATV was equipped with seat belts or if the men were wearing helmets.

Their bodies will be sent to Bismarck for autopsy, Morris said.

North Dakota Highway Patrol officials are on the scene reconstructing the accident.
