County Sheriff’s Report

A teen-aged girl suffered head injuries last week when she fell off an all-terrain vehicle on Millrace Road in Oakley

"She’s probably going to be OK," Summit County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Sherm Farnsworth said. "She’s lucky."

Three girls were on the four-wheeler when the driver lost control, he said.

"None of them had a helmet," Farnsworth said. "One of the girls riding on the back of the four-wheeler fell off of it and hit her head on the ground."

He warned residents to wear helmets while riding ATVs and to only ride the machines two at a time. ATVs are permitted on public roads only when agricultural duties are being performed.
