Woman killed in ATV accident

Angela Gaston, 50, of Madison, was driving northbound on NE Rocky Ford Road on Saturday, Jan. 16 around 9 p.m. on a 2013 Polar AVT.

For unknown reasons, Gaston’s vehicle began to turn counterclockwise and this action caused her to become separated from her All-Terrain-Vehicle.

The out of control vehicle came to an uncontrolled stop after throwing its driver. The vehicle came to a rest facing northwest in a driveway on the west shoulder of NE Rocky Ford Road.

Gaston came to a final rest facing north in the southbound travel lane; opposite from where her ATV came to a final stop.

Gaston, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, was taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where she later passed away due to her injuries.

No alcohol is believed to have played a part in the accident.

An autopsy is being performed to determine if a medical condition might have been a factor in the accident.

Gaston is survived by her husband, Wesley Gaston, of Pinetta; one son, Michael Gaston and his wife Rebecca, of Greenville; two daughters, Stacey Bachari and husband Cyrus, of Pinetta, and Amy Gaston and husband Gary, of Statenville, Ga.; her mother, Louise Roberts and husband Larry, of Pinetta; one brother, Dale Weaver, of Valdosta, Ga.; 10 grandchildren: Colby Moore, Kaden Gaston, Kaylee Gaston, Taryn Whitaker, Bryson Bachari, Braylee Moore, Grayson Moore, Brantley Bachari, Brooklynn Bachari and Alexa Gaston; as a well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 2 p.m. at Pinetta Baptist Church with Rev. Gerald Greenlee and Rev. Dean Spivey officiating. Interment services will follow immediately afterwards at Mt. Horeb Cemetery. The family received friends from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at Burns Funeral Home of Madison.
