TIPPECANOE, Ind (www.incnow.tv) - Two brothers sustained injuries Saturday due to an ATV accident.

Zolyn Perman, 12, and his brother Zen Perman, 14, were thrown from an ATV when it struck a utility pole.

Zolyn Perman was operating the ATV and Zen Perman was seated on the ATV behind him. Zolyn was in a gravel driveway on private property and was attempting to drive the ATV around a utility pole to put it up for the evening.

Officials say the ATV was estimated to be traveling 30mph when the accident occurred, and the speed and gravel did not allow for the ATV to turn as sharply as Zolyn intended for it to. The ATV slid into a utility pole throwing the brothers from the ATV onto the grass.

Both victims were treated at a local hospital.
