Alcohol may have been a factor in a weekend ATV accident in Sullivan County that seriously injured two people.
28 year old Jerrad Pirtle, and 29 year old Patricia Pierson, who are both from Sullivan, were riding the ATV when it overturned on a steep hillside. Pirtle suffered injuries to his head and is listed in critical condition at Methodist Hospital. Peirson is in stable condition, with several broken bones. Conservation officers are continuing their investigation.
