Two Rutherford County residents were two of five people who escaped serious injury during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning when their 2014 Polaris Ranger ATV went off the road in DeKalb County, TN. The accident occurred in the Lakeview Mountain Estates and we are told the ATV overturned and went down an embankment.
State Trooper Chris Delong said the ATV, driven by 33 year old Jordan Howell of Murfreesboro, was traveling north on Mountain View Drive when the LED lights went out. As Howell looked back in search of another light source, the All Terrain Vehicle went off the road in a curve. Four of the five persons on board were thrown from the ATV.
Passengers included 35 year old Jason Myatt of Bowling Green, Kentucky, 36 year old Justus Carter of Shelbyville, 40 year old Beverly Camp of Eagleville, and 32 year old Hannah Pulvers.
DeKalb County EMS treated some of them at the scene. None were seriously injured but Camp was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle.
Trooper Delong said Howell was cited for operating an ATV on the roadway. Trooper Bobby Johnson assisted Trooper Delong at the scene.
