Friday Harbor man suffers life-threatening injuries in ATV crash
A Friday Harbor man driving an all-terrain vehicle suffered life-threatening injuries Thursday evening after crashing into a chain that spans the entrance to the sports fields complex under construction at Carter Avenue.
The 52-year-old, headed south on an access road that connects the complex to Carter Avenue, was traveling at a high-rate of speed when he struck the chain, according to the San Juan County Sheriff's Department.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene in less than a minute after they were notified of the crash, at 8:18 p.m. The man was subsequently flown off-island for treatment, according to the Sheriff's department.
The man was not wearing a helmet and operating a Honda 250 three-wheeler at the time of the crash, according to the Sheriff's department.
An investigation is under way.
