A 27-year-old Sumter man was killed Tuesday night when his all-terrain vehicle overturned and he was struck by a pickup truck.

The man, whose identity was not immediately available, was driving the ATV with a passenger, Melanie Beck, 36, of Sumter, in a driveway around 10:51 p.m. when the wreck occurred, S.C. Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones said.
