Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a Pike County ORV accident that involved six juveniles resulting in two being hospitalized.
The two four-wheeler’s being driven collided, rolled and ejected all six occupants. One of the juveniles involved was taken to Daviess Community Hospital with head and arm injuries. Another was taken to Memorial Hospital in Jasper and treated for road rash and a wrist injury.
The accident occurred late Saturday afternoon when one of the ORV’s being operated slowed down and the operator of the second ORV following it, failed to realize the first ORV was slowing. The second ORV ran into the back-end of the first ORV.
The juveniles involved ranged from thirteen to fifteen years of age and none of them were wearing helmets or safety gear.
