GREEN, OH (WOIO) - Two people were injured while riding an ATV Friday evening, one of which died on scene.

The Summit County Sheriff's office and the Green Fire Department responded to an ATV accident on Thrusby Road late Friday evening.

When the crews arrived on scene, 19-year-old James Ice was found dead and 29-year-old Shelly Lindsey had serious injuries.

A car was traveling on Thrusby Road and saw the accident, called it in to 9-1-1.

It seems that the ATV went off the road and struck a tree. Shelly Lindsey was thrown from the ATV and found about 20-30 ft. from the crash.

Neither victims were wearing a helmet.

Shelly Lindsey was taken to Akron City Hospital and was listed in serious condition in the ICU.
