BARNES CORNERS Lewis County sheriffs deputies said Raymond G. Hansen Jr., 62, of East Hampton, Conn., was driving an ATV west on Denning Road in the town of Pinckney at 6:54 p.m. Saturday when he drove over several potholes on the ice- and mud-covered road that caused him to lose control of his vehicle.
He then drove up part of a snowbank and the ATV tipped over onto its side, deputies said.
He complained of back pain and was taken to Lewis County General Hospital, Lowville, by Lewis County Search and Rescue.
The ATV was not damaged.
Saturday was Lewis Countys annual Snirt Run ATV ride.
