FRANCONIA, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old boy has been injured in an ATV accident in New Hampshire.

The Fish and Game Department says the boy, from Island Pond, Vermont, was riding a youth model ATV in the parking lot across from Cannon Mountain Ski Lodge on Wednesday. Officers say it appears the youth operator turned the ATV sharply, causing it to roll over.

The 4-year-old, who wasn’t wearing a helmet or safety equipment, was taken to a hospital for treatment of a serious, but non-life-threatening injury.
