Two injured in pair of ATV crashes


MIAMI COUNTY — Two persons were injured in a pair of ATV crashes over Easter weekend in Miami County.

On Saturday evening, Troy medics were sent to an address in the 5000 block of Casstown-Sidney Road where a female driver reportedly crashed on an ATV while riding in a farm field. Miami County Sheriff’s Office reports indicate that the female sustained a gash to her head but was conscious when medics arrived.

She was transported to Upper Valley Medical Center for treatment.

Another ATV crash, this one on Easter Sunday afternoon in the 200 block of North High Street in Bradford, saw Bradford Rescue Squad sent to assist the male driver.

Reports indicate that the driver, identified by Miami County Sheriff’s reports as Jeffrey Crowell, was driving south on High Street when he lost control and was ejected from his ATV at an estimated 27 to 30 miles per hour, around 6:30 p.m. CareFlight was requested but was not initially available.

The patient was transported to Upper Valley Medical Center where a Miami Valley Hospital Mobile Intensive Care Unit medic was dispatched to meet Bradford.

Sheriff’s department reports said that, as of Sunday evening, Crowell was listed in serious condition.

The name of the Casstown-Sidney crash victim is not available.
