Spencer Woman Injured in ATV Accident

A Spencer woman was injured this past weekend after she was ejected from an ATV.

According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened around 9:10 Sunday morning in the 32-hundred mile of 330th Street near Lost Island. An investigation determined that 23-year-old Emma Holst was driving a Polaris Trailboss 325 ATV westbound on the street when she entered the ditch. Holst reportedly didn’t realize how steep the ditch was and lost control of the ATV, striking a fence on the north side of the road.

Holst was ejected from the vehicle and sustained lacerations to her face, arms, and legs after coming in contact with a barbed wire fence. Emergency Medical Services tended to Holst, and transported her to the Spencer Hospital. The ATV received approximately one-thousand dollars in damage. The incident remains under investigation.
