MALONE — Two people were injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident Monday.
Shortly before 8:35 p.m., Jared R. Bashaw, 14, of Owls Head, and James D. Landry, 28, of Malone were traveling eastbound on Wolf Pond Road. Bashaw was operating a 2013 Suzuki ATV and accelerated, causing the vehicle’s front end to rise and strike the rear of Landry’s 2013 Yamaha.
The collision ejected Bashaw from his vehicle where he suffered a head injury. Bashaw had been wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. He was taken to Alice Hyde Medical Center before being transferred to Fletcher Allen for observation.
Bashaw’s mother, Shannon H. Cook, was cited for Bashaw’s unsupervised operation of an ATV under the age of 16.
