2 Critically Injured In ATV Accident

UNION BRIDGE, Md. (AP) — Police say alcohol is believed to be a factor in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Carroll County that left a man and a woman critically injured.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office says the man and woman were taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore after the accident early Sunday morning in Union Bridge.

Police say the man lost control of the ATV and struck a guardrail. Neither he nor his female passenger was wearing a
helmet, and they were found unconscious and unresponsive. They were identified as  James Maticic, 36, of Union Bridge and
Debranne Martin, 19, of Taneytown.

    Anybody who drives these things is an a-hole. They serve no useful perpose except to kills kids & drunk adults.

      Dave, jump off a cliff as you probably serve no useful purpose except to bash what you do not know… Have you ever transported a large amount of material from one field to another? Where any other vehicle will get stuck? Have you ever had to drag a hunted animal over 1000 yards over mountains or through low lying areas??? Or do you just hide inside after work like a human sheep???

        Meeeeeeeee, Maybe one in a hundred thousand do what you describe. The vast majority get liquored up & act like idiots. What did they do before ATV’s>>>>The used horses so STFU!!

  • dan

    Your comment just shows how, big of a idiot you are.

    Dan & Ryan, ever go to a teen’s funeral that rode an ATV you jerkoffs. They serve no useful purpose except for afew cheap thrills & consumer excess commercialism exploitation.

    • meeeeeeeeeeeeee

      My ex’s father had died going off a cliff and saved his daughters life giving his own… Do you get in your car and drive? Do you assume the risk if a tractor trailer has a blow out and kills you??? Cars serve no purpose except kill people, I think there were less deaths with a horse and buggy in a percentage then now…Maybe we should ban all cars too? Stop blaming the gun as a gun is useless without someone holding it…Accidents happen, if the world was perfect we’d all be at disneyland singing its a small world after all!

    I own an ATV; the only thrill I get from it is not having to carry 40 lbs bags of corn 1000 yards to put into deer feeders. Try doing that every month; after the third bag, you would be ready to sell your right arm for one!

    If there is anything funny about this it appears in a separate story a guy from Oakland Maryland died in an ATV crash, The Sun Paper has the same photo of the same red ATV from this accident…
