PRINEVILLE, OR -- A 53-year-old man was hurt in an ATV crash, about 12 miles southeast of Prineville, Saturday evening.  According to the Crook County Sheriff’s Office, 53-year-old Robert Smith rode the four-wheeler from private property on to Prairie Schooner Road without a helmet or protective gear. He accelerated quickly, lost control and was ejected from.

 

Medics took Smith to the Prineville hospital with a serious head injury; he was immediately transferred from the ambulance to a helicopter and flown to St. Charles Bend.
 
The crash is under investigation but the Sheriff’s office believes speed and alcohol were contributing factors.
