TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

STEER ROPING AVENUE AND BULL RIDING ROAD: A 30-year-old man was taken to the emergency room after he and another 30 year-old man were riding an ATV and crashed it. Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds said a call came in to the sheriff’s office at about 11 p.m. from a 51-year-old man who said the alarm to his vehicle went off in his driveway. He said he saw an ATV speed away from his home. Deputies then found the ATV crashed and later contacted the men who were driving it. The passenger was the one who needed medical attention for a severe road burn and a head injury. The driver was ticketed for reckless driving and no insurance.
