A 2015 Polaris Razor driven by a 32-year-old man with an 18-year-old female passenger drove up a large berm on Sandy Cove Beach at an unknown rate of speed, Hurricane Police officer Jeff Adams said.

“They caught some air,” Adams said, “launching the machine airborne and once they landed, the machine flipped multiple times.”

Adams said the OHV went end over end three times before coming to rest. The passengers both sustained injuries and were transported to the hospital.

The OHV was driven away from the scene. Units from the Hurricane City Police Department, Hurricane Valley Fire District and officials from the Division of Natural Resources  responded to the accident.
