ATV rollover results in injuries in Gordon

A Barron man was injured in an ATV accident along the Wild River Trail north of the Poodle Inn in Gordon on Saturday night.

Wesley E. Campbell, 52, remained in good condition in St. Luke's Hospital.

Campbell had been riding along the trail with a large group, but no one saw the accident, according to a Douglas County Sheriff's Department report. He was found lying on the trail with the ATV beside him.

Damage to the windshield of the vehicle indicated that it had rolled over onto its side at one point, the report stated. Campbell's helmet was found quite a distance away so members of the group figured he was wearing it but the strap was not secured, according to the report. The accident occurred on the trail just north of County Highway M.

Campbell was taken by Gold Cross Ambulance to St. Luke's.
