After arriving, emergency responders determined the vehicle was traveling northbound on 675th Avenue and as it was coming around a curve the driver over-corrected, which caused the ATV to tip onto its side. The ATV then slid on the driver’s side until it came to a stop on the shoulder of the roadway.
The driver of the vehicle, identified as 14-year-old Sidney Schreiner of Kimball, was airlifted to the St. Cloud Hospital for serious injuries to her arm and leg.READ MORE: Firefighters Hurt By Falling Porch During Minneapolis House Fire
