Tyler - One teen girl is taken to a local hospital after an ATV accident in a Tyler parking lot this morning. It happened on South Broadway in the French Quarter shopping center.
Police say a bunch of teenagers typically hang out by the Dairy Queen before going to school at Robert E. Lee in the morning. This morning before 8 a.m., a 16-year-old boy brought an ATV strapped to a trailer on his pickup truck. Officers say two teen girls decided they wanted to ride on top of the ATV while he drove the trailer around the parking lot. Police think the boy may have taken a curve too sharply, because the ATV straps broke, and the trailer tipped over with the girls on it. They both hit the pavement.
Police say one girl was fine, and another was taken to a local hospital with a head injury. It's unclear how severe the injury was. KETK will bring you more information as it becomes available.
