According to authorities, Dilday and his passenger were riding the Kawasaki T-Rex ATV around 8 p.m. near County Road 410 outside of Leona. The ATV rolled over on the two men. Dilday was pronounced dead at the scene of the rollover.

Officials are still investigating the ATV accident near Leona and have not yet revealed what may have caused the riders to overturn.
