Three area teens were injured recently in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Brevard County. Accident investigators say that the teens were riding together on Hammock Road in Mims around 6 p.m. one recent evening when one of the ATVs clipped the back of another, causing a third to collide with one of the ATVs. The accident involved four teens, with one of the teens riding on the back of one of the three ATVs. The three injured teens were airlifted to two Orlando hospitals, where one is listed in critical condition, another is listed in serious condition and a third was treated for minor injuries. Orlando personal injury attorney James O. Cunningham is monitoring developments in this case closely, as this is one of several recent accidents involving ATVs that resulted in severe injuries to young people. Police say that one of the ATVs ran over at least two of the teens, resulting in the serious injuries.
