CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A man had to have his arm amputated after an ATV crash in Clinton County Friday afternoon. Conservation Officers are investigating a rollover incident where three people were uninjured, but one had to be airlifted from the scene.
Conservation officers said it all happened before 4 p.m. outside of Michigantown, Ind., near State Road 29 and County Road 400. Investigators said 38-year-old Russell Schultz was driving a Polaris Ranger. He went to accelerate over a low-lying area, lost control of the landing and rolled the Ranger.
As the vehicle rolled, one of the passengers, 59-year-old Doyne Crum, lost his grip on the frame and his arm got caught between the frame and the ground. His arm had to be amputated and he was airlifted to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. Schultz and the two children, ages 7 and 14, were uninjured.
Investigators said the Ranger had seat belts, but were not being utilized. Drugs or alcohol are not believed to be factors.
The crash remains under investigation.
