JEFFERSON HILLS (KDKA) — Two people were hurt when an ATV crashed into a fly ash dump in Jefferson Hills.
Relatives tell KDKA’s Kym Gable 44-year-old Paul Everett was seriously injured when his quad rolled over in a fly ash dump off of Elm Hollow Road.
His 13-year-old daughter was on foot. She suffered a minor injury.
The location was challenging for rescuers. They had to use ATVs to maneuver through narrow dirt roads and thick brush.
“They were down here riding and he started up the hill and I guess it stalled out and started backwards and I guess it flipped over on him or something, I don’t know,” Harry Brownfield, the victim’s brother-in-law, said.
Brownfield says he rides there often. While the fly ash dump is private property, the family had permission to ride there.
A medical helicopter landed right on top of the fly ash and flew Everett to Allegheny General Hospital.
