Two juveniles were involved in an accident on an ATV in Morton, IL. A young boy and girl were riding the ATV when they lost control and ran into a tree. They were both thrown from the vehicle suffering broken bones and transported to a local hospital. Reckless driving is believed to be the cause of the accident.

In 2011, there were 327 deaths nationally related to ATV accidents, according to the website They also report that there were 107,500 injuries treated at emergency rooms due to ATV accidents.
