SLEEPY EYE - Three unidentified female juveniles were injured in an ATV rollover accident on Saturday at 1:40 p.m. in rural Sleepy Eye.

The accident occurred when the girls were riding together on a Class 2 four-wheeled ATV down a field road on a farm in Praireville Township. The driver lost control of ATV, causing the passenger on the very back to fall off and sustain minor injuries. The ATV then slid into a drainage ditch and rolled over on the other two girls. The driver sustained facial and head injuries. The second passenger sustained a broken arm as well as head and neck injuries.

The thrown passenger was taken to Sleepy Eye Hospital in a private vehicle, where she was treated and released. The other two were taken by ambulance to the Sleepy Eye Hospital. The driver has been released. The passenger with a broken arm and neck injuries was airlifted to a metro hospital. Her current status is unknown.

Further details on the incident are pending an investigation by the Brown County Sheriff's Office.
