Two Injured in Sullivan Co. ORV Accident

Authorities say alcohol may have been a contributing factor in an off road vehicle accident in northwest Sullivan County early Sunday morning.

State conservation officers say 28-year-old Jerrad Pirtle of Sullivan is in critical condition at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis with a head injury.

29-year-old Patricia Pierson, also from Sullivan, suffered several broken bones and is in stable condition at Methodist.

Authorities say the pair was injured when their side-by-side, 4-wheeled Off Road Vehicle overturned on a steep hillside.

They were found by passerby lying along County Road 300 North and taken to Sullivan Community Hospital where they were transferred to Indianapolis.

The investigation continues.
