cleatonCLEATON, Ky. (8/13/14) — A juvenile female was injured and transferred via medical ambulance to Nashville after having an ATV accident last night.

Central Dispatch received a call of an ATV accident at 9:16 p.m. on Kentucky 2107 between Drakesboro and Central City.

According to Kentucky State Trooper Jeff McWhorten, a 17-year-old-female was riding a Honda 250 four-wheeled vehicle on Kentucky 2107 when it slipped off the curb causing the vehicle to wreck.
