FRENCH CREEK - Ben J. Whitney, 62, of Mann Rd., Clymer was involved in a personal injury accident on Saturday, Nov. 3.
According to the sheriff's office, Whitney was allegedly operating an ATV southeast bound on Mann Rd., away from his residence around 6:45 p.m. He was allegedly on the roadway and didn't have a helmet on. It appears he allegedly made too abrupt of a right turn across the roadway and the ATV's tires skidded, caught and rolled the ATV over. This ejected Whitney upon the roadway. He sustained injuries to his ankles and serious injuries to his head. A passing motorist came across him lying in the middle of the roadway and his ATV lying in the ditch. He was transported by ambulance to Hamot Hospital where he is listed in stable condition. An investigation is on going. Speed doesn't appear to have played a factor at this time.
