Three-year-old injured in Switzerland County ATV accident

SWITZERLAND COUNTY, Ind. — A three-year-old child has been injured in an All-Terrain Vehicle accident in Switzerland County on Sunday.

According to Indiana Conservation Officers, Hudson Otter, 3, was operating an ATV on private property on Seymour Road in Switzerland County when the ATV rolled and pinned him underneath of it.

Otter’s father, who was supervising at the time of the crash, quickly removed the ATV from the child and called 911.

Conservation officers say that Otter was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, which is believed to have significantly reduced further injury.

Otter was airlifted to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The extent of the injuries is unknown, but do not appear to be life-threatening.
