An Indiana man was injured after he was involved in an accident on an all-terrain vehicle in Cass County’s Porter Township.
Sheriff Richard Behnke said deputies were called shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday to the 10000 block of Bair Lake Road in response to an accident with injuries.
Upon arrival, deputies met with the driver, 40-year-old Timothy Krucina, of Hobart. He told authorities he was driving through a bean field and believes he inadvertently applied the ATV’s front brake.
The momentum caused him to eject in a forward manner from the seat of the ATV. Krucina was not wearing a helmet and authorities said alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
He was transported to Three Rivers Health for treatment of minor injuries.
