Driver hurt in late night ATV crash

An all-terrain vehicle accident west of Burns sent a 30-year-old man to a hospital at 1:38 a.m. Sunday.

Undersheriff Larry Starkey said Brandon Hayes was driving east on 20th Rd. but lost control of his ATV, which entered a ditch near the intersection with Xavier Rd.

Emergency medical services director Travis Parmley said Hayes had been walking around the scene before an ambulance arrived.

He had pain in his arms, lower back and neck.

Emergency medical technicians originally planned to take Hayes to Susan B. Anthony Hospital in El Dorado, but were diverted to Wesley Medical Center instead.

Hayes is reported to have been intoxicated.

Starkey said no citations were issued, but the accident remained under investigation.

“There are some things being looked at,” Starkey said.
