SPEEDWELL, TN (WLAF) – Six teenagers from Cincinnati were involved in an ATV wreck on Saturday night in east Campbell County.
In a report from Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Jacob Wiser, the accident happened at 10:36 pm Saturday night just off Flat Hollow Road at Speedwell.
Wiser details that the all terrain vehicle, a 2018 Textron, was driven by 19-year old Lars Illokken of Cincinnati, Ohio. Illokken’s passengers were Steve Nickels, Michael McGregor, Nick Folzenlogen, Evan Bold and Josh Niemann, all age 19 and all of Cincinnati.
The ATV was traveling on Flat Hollow Road when it traveled off the road to the right, struck an earthen embankment and overturned for a final rest according to Wiser’s report.
Two of the six occupants were injured and taken to a Knoxville hospital. The patients, Niemann and Bold, were transported by ground ambulance, because a med chopper could not fly due to poor weather conditions.
Responding were members from the Campbell County EMS, the Campbell County Rural Fire Service, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/23/2020-12:50PM)
