Juvenile male not wearing helmet thrown off ATV into tree

HARPSWELL, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Officials responded to an accident involving three juvenile males around 2 p.m. in Harpswell on July 29, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department. 

The three individuals were riding a Polaris RZR 570 EFI side by side when the driver from Florida,15, went off the shoulder of a private road, causing the machine to tip. 

The imbalance caused the 15-year-old male from Connecticut standing on the back of the vehicle to be thrown into a tree. He and the driver were not wearing helmets.
