Hamilton Police Continue To Investigate ATV Accident
On Saturday, October 8, 2022, shortly after 4:00 p.m., a 35-year-old Hamilton male was driving his side by side ATV, along with his two children, an 8-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son in a field just west of Miles Road in the City of Hamilton. The ATV entered a 30’ deep pond located on the property and submerged.
The 35-year-old male was able to get out and call for help.
