Two men sustained non-life-threatening injuries when the ATV they were in crashed into another north of Orr, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office reported.
According to a news release, Tim Harding, 28, of New Braunfels, Texas, was driving an ATV with Justin Hamilton, 41, of Iowa City, Iowa as a passenger at 3:45 p.m. Friday. As they crested the top of a hill on Forest Service Road 601 north of Orr, Harding lost control of the ATV and rolled. A second ATV driven by Ronald Harding, 36, of Solon, Iowa, then ran into the rolled ATV. Ronald Harding was uninjured. Time Harding was treated for minor injuries and released while Hamilton was taken by LifeLink to a Duluth hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Speed is thought to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation by the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office.
