Two children from Pattonsburg were injured on Tuesday afternoon in an all-terrain vehicle rollover accident just east of Pattonsburg on Route C. The Highway Patrol said one of the drivers, nine year old Ashton LaFave of Pattonsburg, received MODERATE injuries and was taken to Cameron Regional Medical Center.
The other driver was not hurt but a passenger, nine year old Jackson Waterbury of Pattonsburg, sustained minor injuries and was taken to Harrison County Community Hospital in Bethany. He was riding on an ATC driven by 14 year old Madison Waterbury of Pattonsburg.

The Missouri State Patrol said both ATV's were eastbound when the one operated by LaFave began to swerve and struck the other, causing both to cross the center of the road, travel off the left side, and overturn, ejecting all three to the ground. Only Jackson Waterbury was wearing a helmet.
