(MORGANTOWN) – Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off-road vehicle (ORV) accident in which one adult male was arrested.
The accident occurred early Sunday morning at approximately 3:00 a.m., near the 7000 block of Bean Blossom Road in Morgantown.
Tracy Luckey, age 24 of Nineveh, was operating an ORV on private property in a wooded area.
For reasons not yet known, the ORV flipped over pinning Luckey underneath and leaving him unconscious.
Luckey refused medical treatment at the scene but was taken into custody by Conservation Officer Rob Klakamp and remanded to the Brown County Jail for operating while intoxicated (OWI).
The cause of the accident is still being investigated, but alcohol appears to have been involved.
The victim was not wearing a helmet or proper safety equipment.
Indiana Conservation Officers stress safe operation of ORVs and the use of proper protective equipment such as helmets.
All charges are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
