Two young girls hurt after crashing ATV on Oneida County road

Two young girls were hurt Saturday night when they crashed their ATV in the Town of Lee. The 12- and 13 year old were not wearing helmets.

A ride on an ATV Saturday night landed a 12 year old and a 13 year old girl in a Utica hospital, after they crashed in a ditch alongside a roadway in Lee Center.

Oneida Sheriff's Deputies say the two were not wearing helmets (required), and that in Oneida County, it's illegal to drive ATVs on roadways. The crash happened, according to investigators, as the girls went out of control while driving northbound on Capron Road about 9pm on Saturday night.

The two were taken to St. Elizabeth's in Utica for evaluations.

The investigation continues, with no tickets issued, so far.
