2 injured in ATV crash

Two people were injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident shortly after midnight Thursday in Kenai.

 

A man and woman riding an ATV crashed into a large rock on the south beach toward Rocky Point, which caused the ATV to flip and throw both riders off, said Kenai Police Lt. David Ross.

The two suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries and were transported to Central Peninsula Hospital for treatment, Ross said. Their names were not available as of Thursday night.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash. Ross said people on the beach need to be cautious of their surroundings and should not operate an ATV while intoxicated.
