At approximately 3:50 p.m. Sunday afternoon, Officers were contacted about an ORV crash on private property in Dillsboro, Dearborn County, where the operator sustained a head injury.
Michelle Williams, 32, Dillsboro, was flown to the University of Cincinnati Hospital for medical treatment of injuries sustained after crashing her ORV.
Michelle was operating her Polaris Razor ORV on private property in Dillsboro when she conducted unsafe movements and operations. The unsafe operations caused the ORV to be flipped onto its side.
A 10-year-old passenger from Lawrenceburg was uninjured in the ORV crash.
Neither Michelle nor the 10-year-old passenger was wearing a helmet or seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Indiana Conservation Officers, Dillsboro EMS, Dillsboro Fire Department, and Dearborn County Sherri’s Department were on the scene of the crash.
A toxicology report will be conducted to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
A reminder that anyone under the age of 18 operating an ORV or being a passenger of an ORV is required by State Law to wear a DOT approved helmet on private and public property.
