      Teenage girls injured in ATV accident

      Two 13-year-old girls are recovering from injuries following an ATV accident in Marquette County. It happened on Monday just before 7 p.m. in Palmer near the power line just north of Kirkpatrick Ave.

      A 13-year-old girl driving the ATV hit an embankment. The machine rolled over on top of her and her 13-year-old passenger.

      The girl's father, who was on the scene, was able to lift the ATV off of them and call 911. Both girls were taken to Marquette General Hospital.

      The driver was treated for injuries to her tailbone, back and knee. The passenger received a minor neck injury. Both were later released to their parents.
