GHOLSON, TX — Three juveniles were left injured after an ATV wreck on Sunday.

According to DPS, three juveniles on an ATV crashed on Patton Branch Road near FM 933, north of Gholson around noon on July 19.

An Arctic Cat ATV traveling southwest failed to properly negotiate the curve causing the ATV to leave the roadway and crash into a fence.

The driver and another passenger were transported by air to a hospital in critical condition, according to DPS.

The third occupant sustained minor injuries.

The investigation is still active and ongoing.

DPS would like to remind people that ATVs are motorized vehicles that are meant to be used off-road or on dirt roads. Since these vehicles are designed for off-road use, it is recommended they are not driven on the roadway.
