Calhoun EMS transported the men, reportedly suffering from neck and back pain, to Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center where at least one was being transferred to St. Joseph Hospital in Parkersburg at 11 p.m. The passengers name was being withheld pending notification of family members at press time.

State Police and the Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department also responded. The area is often used by ATV's and sports utility vehicles. It was the scene of a four-wheeler accident a few weeks ago where the victim, a Parkersburg resident, was life-flighted to Charleston Area Medical Center.
