Two of three men who were involved in an ATV accident on Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019 talk with first-responders near the incident scene along the southbound Route 28 Natrona Heights exit (Exit 15), near the border of Fawn and Harrison.

One man was taken to Allegheny Valley Hospital in Harrison on Sunday afternoon after an ATV accident.

The accident was reported to Allegheny County 911 shortly after 1:30 p.m., a dispatcher said. It happened near the southbound Route 28 exit at Natrona Heights (Exit 15), near the border of Fawn and Harrison.

According to police at the scene, three men — each on their own ATV — were involved. No details on the accident were immediately available.

The names of the men involved were not available.

The extent of the injuries to the man taken to the hospital by ambulance was not available.

A second man was checked at the scene but refused treatment, according to police. The third man was not hurt.

After some debate, first-responders determined the incident happened in Fawn, meaning state police will handle the investigation as they cover Fawn when township police are not on duty.

The southbound Exit 15 off-ramp was closed while first-responders were at the scene.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
