Couple injured in 4 wheeler accident


A day of ATV riding nearly turned deadly when a couple crashed their 4-wheeler into the woods Saturday morning.

The accident happened near a wooded area off Sylvarena Road near Highway 28, in Copiah County.

Sheriff Percy Calhoun said a 52-year-old woman, whose name was not released, was driving an ATV down a hill when the brakes failed.

Investigators say the woman was airlifted from a local hospital to UMMC with serious injuries. She is in stable condition.

A 52-year-old man was also hurt in the accident.  He suffered less serious injuries.
