ATV accident sends LaGrange woman to hospital

LaGrange, Ind. Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off-road vehicle accident that occurred Sunday in Lagrange County and ended with an injury.

Ruby Eicher, 23, of LaGrange was operating an off-road vehicle on private property in the 1700 W block of CR 200 N at approximately 4:45 p.m.

Eicher was operating at a high rate of speed when she attempted to turn the off-road vehicle. The vehicle slid in a gravel area and then flipped when the gravel transitioned to a concrete driveway.

Eicher was thrown from the off-road vehicle and landed on the concrete. She was not wearing a helmet.

The off-road vehicle then damaged a residential garage door at Eicher’s residence.

Eicher suffered a neck injury as a result of the accident and was airlifted to Parkview Hospital.
