Toddler Airlifted To Syracuse Hospital After ATV Accident
A two-year-old child is expected to survive but had to be airlifted to a Syracuse hospital after being involved in an ATV accident in the town of Floyd.
Officials with the Oneida County Sheriff's Office say the toddler was a passenger riding on the ATV when the operator lost control, went across the road and resulted in both the driver and young child being ejected. It happened on Tuesday afternoon shortly before 1:00 p.m. on Koenig Road.
The ATV was being operated by 25-year-old Alexandria Loomis. She was transported by ambulance for medical attention.
The child is being cared for a SUNY Upstate Medical Center. Deputies say while the boy's injuries are serious, they are not believed to be life-threatening.
No tickets have been issued thus far, and the accident remains under investigation.
First responders from AMCARE Ambulance, Floyd Fire Dept, Mercy Flight, and New York State Police assisted sheriff's deputies at the scene, officials said.
