Brainerd Man Killed, Passenger Badly Hurt In ATV Accident

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011 at 8:25 am

A Brainerd man was killed and a passenger on his all-terrain vehicle was injured when in a rollover in Crow Wing County earlier in the week.

Authorities received a 911 call from a remote area of Deerwood Township Monday afternoon informing them of the accident. The call was placed by others riding in the same ATV group. The callers apparently couldn’t tell authorities exactly where they were, so a helicopter was sent up to locate the accident scene and direct rescuers on the ground.

KARE-11 reports that when first responders reached the victims, a 47-year-old man had died and a 21-year-old male passenger was badly injured. The condition of the injured man isn’t known.
