Off-road Noble County crash hurts Hawaii man
Indiana conservation officers are investigating an off-road vehicle accident that sent one person to the hospital Wednesday afternoon, according to a police report.
Dylan Stewart, 33, of Kailua, Hawaii, was operating his father’s 2015 Polaris RZR at a slow speed in a hayfield on his family’s property when he struck a limb hidden in the grass with the right front tire.
The limb went through the thin plastic fire wall behind the front tire and impaled the left thigh of his passenger, Paige Conover, 25, also of Kailua. The limb embedded itself into the driver’s seat.
Emergency workers responded at 1:23 p.m. Conover was flown to a hospital for medical treatment. <br>
