Two injured after ORV accident in Greenwood; alcohol may have been involved

GREENWOOD, Ind. — Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off-road vehicle (ORV) accident in which one adult male and one juvenile female sustained injuries.

The accident occurred about 6:30 p.m.  Saturday, night near the 1300 block of Norton Drive in Greenwood.

A 31-year-old Greenwood man was operating an ORV on a roadway in a residential area with a juvenile passenger.  For reasons not known, the ORV flipped over, which pinned the man underneath and threw the juvenile off.

Both the man and the juvenile were taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital by ambulance. The man is being treated for head lacerations and the juvenile for hand and shoulder injuries.

The cause of the accident is still being investigated, but alcohol appears to have been involved. Neither victim was wearing a helmet or proper safety equipment.

It is also unlawful to operate an ORV on a public roadway unless approved by county commissioners. Johnson County does not allow ORV operation on roadways.
