Teens Hurt In ATV Crash Weren't Wearing Helmets

Posted Updated

JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. — Two teenagers hurt in an ATV crash were not wearing helmets, authorities said.

A brother and sister were riding on the same ATV when it struck a tree Sunday on McLamb Road in Johnston County.

The 13-year-old girl was treated and released from the hospital.

Her 15-year-old brother is at UNC Hospitals with head injuries.

Both are from Harnett County.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the ATV crashed into a pond and that injuries to the boy were not life threatening.
