A 4-year-old suffered a head injury after an ATV accident in Stearns County Saturday afternoon.
At about 2:45 p.m., Stearns County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 22000 block of 23rd Avenue in St. Augusta for an ATV crash with injuries.
According to Sheriff Steve Soyka, deputies arrived and found a 4-year-old male with a head injury. After speaking to his parents, it was determined the 4-year-old hopped onto their small 50cc ATV after his siblings had gotten off. The 4-year-old drove over a dirt mound, which dropped about 4-5 feet.
Authorities say the boy was wearing a helmet, but still sustained a significant head injury and was airlifted to Minneapolis Children’s Hospital for treatment.
