Two 15-year-old girls were injured Thursday night when an all-terrain vehicle traveled off a road and overturned five miles north of Cameron.

The ATV was driven by a Cameron girl. A passenger was from Apex, North Carolina. Both were taken by private vehicle to Cameron Regional Medical Center.

No names were released by the patrol due to their status as a minor.

ATV damage was listed as moderate and the report indicated no safety equipment was in use by the riders.
