A Columbia City man was seriously injured Sunday morning in an all-terrain vehicle crash north of South Whitley, according to Indiana conservation officers.
Jamie Elliott, 29, was operating a 2013 Yamaha 450 on County Road 300 South, just west of County Road 625 West, when he lost control of the vehicle, conservation officers said.
The crash was reported to 911 dispatchers shortly after 10 a.m. A witness told investigators that Elliott was driving with the ATVs front wheels in the air when the vehicle flipped over, conservation officers said.
Elliott was taken to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne with injuries to his head, neck, shoulders and back, conservation officers said. He was in serious condition Monday, hospital staff said.
He was not wearing a helmet or other protective gear at the time of the crash, conservation officers said.
