14 Year Old Airlifted After Being Ejected in ATV Accident

On Sunday November 23, 2014 at approximately 12:38 PM, Darke County Sheriff Deputies along with Gettysburg Rescue, Bradford Fire Dept. and CareFlight were dispatched to the 6600 block of Smith Rd on a report of a private property injury accident involving a 4-wheeler ATV that had been flipped in a field.

Investigation revealed a Polaris 500 Scrambler 4-wheeler ATV was being operated by a 14 year old female from Bradford, OH. and was riding the ATV through a family owned field and lost control after riding in a grass waterway ejecting her from the ATV and then the ATV rolled on top of her. She was taken to Miami Valley Hospital aboard Careflight for non-life threatening injuries, and she was not wearing a helmet at the time.

This accident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff's Office.
