A release from the Waterford Police Department:
On Sunday, Feb. 10 at approximately 5:28 p.m., the Waterford Emergency Communications Center received notification from a Public Works unit clearing the roadways of snow, reporting a motor vehicle accident in the area between 41 & 37 Locust Court, in the Town of Waterford.
Members of the Waterford Police, Fire and Ambulance Association, along with Lawrence and Memorial paramedics responded to this call. Locust Court remained closed for a brief period Sunday while the crash scene was documented and investigated.
The initial investigation indicated that a single juvenile male was operating an All-Terrain Vehicle, traveling on the snow and ice covered roadway of Locust Court. The operator appears to have lost control of the vehicle, at which time the ATV rolled and the operator was ejected.
The operator was transported from the scene, via ambulance to Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London, CT for treatment of injuries. The subject’s name is not available for release at this time due to his age, the ongoing investigation and family notification.
This crash remains under investigation by the Waterford Police Department and members of its Accident Investigation Team.
