Child injured in Jennings County ATV accident

A two-year-old child was airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis after an off-road vehicle accident yesterday in Jennings County. Indiana conservation officers report that the crash happened at around 2:25 p.m. Sunday, when 25-year-old Casey Kissich was driving the ATV in the 4100 block of South County Road 350W near Lovett.

Neither the driver nor the child were wearing helmets or other protective gear when the ATV overturned, throwing them both off.

The child was taken first to St. Vincent Hospital in North Vernon and then flown to Riley. Conservation officers say the extent of the child’s injuries are not yet known.

Conservation officers want to remind you to always wear a helmet and safety gear if you are operating an off-road vehicle.
