COLUMBIA CITY â€” Two juveniles injured in an all-terrain vehicle crash on Easter Sunday are in good condition.
At approximately 7:30 p.m., two 17-year-old girls from Whitley County were riding together on an ATV across an open field in southwest Whitley County.
According to Darren Reed, Indiana Conservation Officer, Shannon Kincaid and Nicole Karrer went through a rough, washed out spot in the area of 3899 S. CR 400 W.
The impact from the washout caused Kincaid to bounce from the driverâ€™s seat, over the handlebars, and onto the ground in front of the vehicle.
The ATV ran over Kincaid, and Karrer also fell off the side of the vehicle before it came to a complete stop.
Reed said neither rider was wearing an helmet at the time of the accident, and both were initially knocked unconscious after hitting the ground.
Both girls were transported to Parkview Regional Hospital in Fort Wayne for treatment of possible head and internal injuries.
Reed was assisted by the Whitley County Sheriffâ€™s Department, Columbia Township Fire Department and Whitley County EMS.
