Boy seriously injured in ATV accident

By Joe Beck

A 6-year-old boy from the Boyce area survived serious injuries Saturday afternoon after he fell off an ATV.

Jim Gray, assistant fire chief for the Boyce Volunteer Fire Company, said Tuesday the victim was airlifted by helicopter to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

"He fell off the ATV and was run over completely," Gray said of the victim. "He did have quite a few traumatic injuries."

Gray said the injuries, although serious, were not life threatening. He said he had no definite information from hospital officials about the boy's condition as of Tuesday afternoon.

Gray said the accident happened around 4 p.m. while the boy was riding the ATV around in the yard of a private residence. The boy and his parents were visiting a family friend at the time, Gray said.

The boy's parents drove him to Jim's Country Store after the accident, Gray said. The store, a short distance from the accident scene, is next door to the fire station of Company 6 of the Warren County Fire and Rescue Services, formerly known as the Shenandoah Farms Volunteer Fire Department.

Gray said emergency responders set up a landing zone at the station for the helicopter.

"We just carried him straight across when they landed the chopper," Gray said, adding that the boy's injuries were determined to be non-life threatening "when we put him on the bird."
