A 12-year-old girl was brought from a Bear Fork hillside
to a Calhoun EMS ambulance following an ATV accident

Two separate ATV accidents sent three people to the hospital this afternoon, two of them receiving serious injuries when their 4-wheeler struck a tree.

Calhoun EMS went to the the first accident at 3 p.m. on the Leading Creek-Freed Road on the Calhoun-Wirt line.

Calhoun EMS and the Arnoldsburg VFD went to the second ATV accident between Sand Ridge and Stumptown at 3:20 p.m.

A man and women, both from Kanawha County, were life-flighted by HealthNet from the yard of a resident on the Leading Creed-Freed Road, a short distance from Brohard.

The couple struck a tree, reportedly giving the injured man a punctured lung, fractured arm, and other injuries. The woman reportedly received a pelvic fracture with internal bleeding.

First Responders from Elizabeth assisted with the accident.

The other accident happened in the backwoods off U. S. 33 (Bear Fork), where twelve-year-old Andrea Collins was injured. Family members said she might have suffered a broken shoulder, along with other injuries.

Calhoun EMS personnel and Arnoldsburg firemen brought the injured girl to the main highway on a 4-wheel drive, after placing her on a backboard.

Collins, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie Collins of Mineral Wells, was first taken to Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center and later transferred to a Parkersburg hospital.
