Girl hurt in ATV accident Saturday in Tenstrike

A 3-year-old East Grand Forks girl was injured about 6:45 p.m. Saturday while riding an all-terrain vehicle in Tenstrike.

According to a Beltrami County Sheriff's Office report:

The girl, who was not identified, was sitting atop a running 2009 Polaris ATV while her parents stood alongside the vehicle on the 21500 block of Gull lake Look Road Northeast.

The girl pushed the ATV's throttle, which sent the vehicle, and her, down a hill, eventually striking a tree.

The girl was taken to North Country Regional Hospital with minor injuries.
