13-year-old girl injured in ATV v. vehicle wreck Monday afternoon

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Fremont County Undersheriff Ryan Lee reports that a 13-year-old Riverton was injured at about 3 p.m. on Monday in an ATV v. vehicle wreck on Cliff Drive north of Riverton.

“The girl was taken to the hospital by her parents for an injury sustained to her leg,” Lee said. “The girl apparently failed to yield to oncoming traffic and drove out directly in front of a north bound vehicle operated by a 43-year-old Riverton woman.”

The report of this wreck came within minutes of a call in Lander where an 11-year-old girl on a scooter was struck by car on North Second Street. The girl was transported by ambulance to SageWest-Lander. As of yesterday afternoon, the girl was believed to be in OK condition. Lander Police are continuing their investigation.
