The young man who died Saturday after an UTV went off a cliff in the Red River Gorge has been identified.  

Colton Brian Dalton, 23, of Crittenden, KY, died from injuries sustained in the accident in Powell County. The accident happened Saturday March 16, 2024, around 8:30 pm at the Hollerwood Offroad Adventure Park. Dalton was a 2018 graduate of Grant Co. High School. He was employed by A.
