Girl, 12, injured in ATV crash


A 12-year-old New York girl broke her wrist and possibly lost consciousn­ess Sunday when she crashed an ATV in Wayne County, state police at Honesdale said.

The girl, from Valley Stream, lost control and hit a stone wall on Branning Road, just east of Peggy Runway Road, at 3:05 p.m. The force of the impact threw the girl, whose name was not released, from the ATV.

State police said she was not wearing her helmet properly and she lost it during the crash.

This was the first time she drove an ATV, her mother, Barbara Quintanill­a, told state police.

Quintanill­a said they were there visiting a friend and her daughter was permitted to ride the ATV.

State police did not have an update Monday on the girl’s condition.
