Two juveniles were involved in an injury accident that occurred on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 4:30 p.m. on the Arkansas River near State Line Road, located eight miles north and 6.5 miles east of Newkirk in Kay County.

While the collision was not not reported by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol until 11:38 p.m. Saturday, the OHP report states that a 15-year-old juvenile male from Newkirk was driving a 2003 Honda EX 300 ATV. The 15-year-old was treated and released with trunk internal injuries. His passenger, a 13-year-old juvenile female from Newkirk, also sustained injuries. The female juvenile was transported by a private vehicle at 10 p.m. by other juveniles to the Newkirk Fire Department, transported by ambulance to AllianceHealth Ponca City and then transferred by AirEvac to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City where she was admitted in stable condition with head and trunk internal injuries.

At this time, the cause of the accident remains unknown.
