A Big Springs man is listed in critical condition Tuesday morning in ICU at Charleston Area Medical Center following an ATV accident Saturday in the Big Bend-Yellow Creek area of Calhoun.

Andrew Jones, about 20, reportedly suffered serious head trauma and other injuries when he was thrown from his ATV.

Jones had reportedly entered an ATV Poker Run with a family member, but had left his group and the designated Poker Run trail when the accident happened.

Family members apparently went in search of Jones and discovered him in the woods about 24-hours later.

Jones was taken to Minnie Hamilton Health System in Grantsville, after which he was transfered to Charleston.

Another man was injured in an ATV wreck on Yellow Creek following the completion of the poker run.

Roger Whipkey was taken to Minnie Hamilton Health System and was then sent to Charleston for further evaluation.

Whipkey reportedly did not receive serious injuries.
