A 7-year-old girl was injured after an all-terrain vehicle accident on Sunday night.

Indiana Conservation Officers were called to the accident in the 4500 block of S. County Road 537E, just south of State Road 252 near Amity, about 7 p.m. The girl was riding the vehicle on the road, but got distracted, rode off the road and crashed into a pole, according to a news release.

The girl cut her face and was treated by medics at the scene. Her family later took her to Johnson Memorial Hospital as a precaution, the release said.

Adults were supervising her while she was riding the vehicle. She was not wearing a helmet or other protective gear, the release said.
