BEE TREE – A Magoffin County man was flown out after an ATV accident on Sunday morning.
On July 8 the Magoffin County Rescue Squad was called to an ATV accident at the head of Bee Tree on Oakley.
The man, whose name was not released, was thrown approximately 25 to 30 feet over the hill. He walked to a nearby house and called for help.
He was then transported via Trans-Star to the landing zone at Royalton, then flown to the Pikeville Medical Center to be treated.
Despite being thrown from the ATV, he only sustained a bad back sprain, according to Magoffin County Rescue Squad Captain Carter Conley.
