Two young women were seriously injured in an ATV accident early Saturday evening (Sept. 19) in Reynolds County in southeast Missouri.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Stephanie Stastny, 20, of Fenton, was riding a Honda Rancho ATV east on Reynolds County Road 849, about 10 miles north of Centerville, at 6 p.m. when she lost control and the ATV overturned and ran into a rock embankment, throwing off both Stastny and a passenger, Alaina Bartleson, 18, of High Ridge.
Both sustained serious injuries and both were airlifted to Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur, the report said.
Updates on their conditions were not available.
Neither was wearing a safety helmet, the report said. The ATV was totaled.
