A Saturday evening ATV accident sends one man to the hospital with serious injuries.

He was not wearing a helmet, and was the only occupant on the ATV. The man was transported to a nearby hospital, and then taken to Madison, where his current status is unknown. Flight for Life was called to the scene, but due to weather conditions, was not able to fly. The crash remains under investigation.
