(DUBOIS CO.) - Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an ATV accident that led to a Dubois County woman being hospitalized Sunday night.

According to a press release, 29-year-old Zachery Linne of Dubois was driving a Polaris Razor side by side ATV with 26-year-old Amanda Jones of Dubois riding as a passenger.

While headed eastbound on Dubois Cuzco Road, the ATV left the roadway and then re-entered the roadway and rolled on its side.

Jones was ejected onto the pavement and suffered facial injuries, abrasions and road rash. She was transported to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The only one wearing any safety gear was Linne, who was wearing a seat belt.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the cause of the accident.

Responding agencies included the Dubois County Sheriffs Department, Indiana State Police, Dubois EMS, Dubois Fire Department and Indiana Conservation Officers.

Indiana Conservation Officers strongly encourage the use of protective equipment such as helmets, gloves and riding boots while operating an ATV.
