35-year-old Michael Mills, of Martinsville, was operating a 2008 Yamaha Rhino at the intersection of Little Hurricane Road and Twin Lakes Road when he lost control of the ATV causing it to flip.

The machine then landed on two passengers that were ejected from the ATV. 35-year-old Patricia Myers, of Martinsville, suffered a broken jaw and clavicle.
