(MILLTOWN) - 5-year-old Sarah Crawford suffered leg and back injuries in an ATV accident Friday.

She was airlifted to Kosair Children's Hospital for treatment.

Indiana conservation officers are investigating the accident that happened at approximately 11 a.m.

Conservation officers were called to the accident scene on private property located off of Slick Creek Road near Milltown.

According to officers, Sahara, was operating a 50 cc off-road motorcycle under her guardian's supervision in her front yard when she lost control and overturned it on top of herself.

Crawford's father, who was right beside her, was able to quickly call for help.

Assisting agencies included the Crawford County Sheriff's Department, Milltown Volunteer Fire Department, and Air Methods Helicopter.

Crawford was wearing a helmet and chest protector at the time of the accident, which likely reduced the severity of her injuries.

Indiana Conservation Officers strongly encourage riders to always wear a helmet and necessary safety equipment when operating an ATV.
