Yakima Herald-Republic

NILE, Wash. – Two people were injured Thursday when the side-by-side ATV they were riding rolled off road into a ditch and flipped over, the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The two, identified as a married couple in their 20s from the Enumclaw, Washington, area, were part of a group riding on a Forest Service road off State Route 410 near Cliffdell when they drove off the road after being blinded by dust from the other riders, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Deputies said the husband was airlifted to a Yakima hospital with a head injury, while the wife was taken to the same hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Both are expected to recover, deputies said.
