An ATV accident has left a West Terre Haute man in an Indianapolis hospital.
Police say that 49 year old Ronald Beck went for a ride on a friends ATV on Darwin Road when the vehicle went off the roadway and crashed.
Witnesses told law enforcement that alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash and that Beck was not wearing a helmet at the time of the incident. Police are continuing their investigation.
Authorities remind you that it is just as illegal to operate an ATV under the influence of drugs and alcohol the same as it is a car.
