Two brothers, ages 8 and 11, were injured when their ATV crashed while they were riding on private property in Benton County on Monday night.

Sheriff's deputies said they responded to a report of the ATV crash at 7:15 p.m.

Neither the 11-year-old boy operating the ATV nor his 8-year-old brother riding with him were wearing helmets or protective gear.

Paramedics took the 11-year-old to Good Samaritan Hospital. His younger brother had to be flown by an air ambulance to Riverbend Hospital, where deputies said he was in critical condition.

Benton County deputies said all children riding off-road vehicles should be supervised by an experienced adult.
