Multiple injured in Morgan County ATV accident

Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an ORV accident with injury that occurred early this morning near the 3100 block of Wilson Road in the town of Quincy.

Samuel Barnett, age 37, was operating a side-by-side along with three passengers in a local field when the ORV’s tires caught the dirt, causing the ORV to roll over. 

It was determined through investigation that none of the occupants of the ORV were wearing safety equipment at the time of the accident. 

Multiple subjects were transported to St. Francis Hospital in Mooresville for lacerations and possible broken bones.

OWI charges will be considered, pending blood results. All charges are merely accusations, and defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Agencies on scene consisted of Indiana Conservation Officers, Morgan County Sheriff’s Department and Morgan County EMS.
