SAINT JO, Texas (KXII) A man is dead after an ATV crash over the weekend at an event in Saint Jo west of Gainesville.

Rednecks with Paychecks is a four day experience during which people can camp, trail-ride and off-road in mud pits.

The accident was reported at around 2 a.m. Saturday, Montague County Chief Deputy Jack Lawson said,

The victim, Steven Fairbairn, who was in his mid-20's, died at a Fort Worth hospital, Lawson said.

His ATV collided head-on with another ATV on what Lawson described as a wide dirt road.

Fairbairn was from England, but was staying with his fiancé in Duncan, Okla., Lawson said.

Fairbairn and his fiancé got engaged just two weeks ago, according to a post on a GoFundMe page.

In 2015 a 10-year-old died in a four-wheeler crash, the first death since the event was started in 2011.
