Three people taken to hospital after ATV accident

Three people were taken to hospital following an ATV accident in Abbotsford at about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The incident took place at a farm off Clayburn Road, east of Highway 11.

A 26-year-old woman was riding the ATV with her seven- and eight-year-old niece and nephew when they hit a bump in the road, and the ATV flipped over.

Two of them were taken to a local hospital, while the third was airlifted to a Vancouver-area hospital with suspected fractures.

Initial reports from authorities at the scene indicated that it was three children who were riding the ATV.
