UPDATE Below: Teen Air-lifted following ATV Accident

Family members were still en route at 5 P.M. to Macon Medical Center and we will update the teen’s condition as reports are available.
UPDATE: 9 P.M. – The father of the 14-year old air-lifted to Macon reported tonight during his return to Worth County that his daughter will be held overnight for further observation but fortunately there are no life-threatening injuries.
