A 14-year-old boy was injured Friday in an ATV accident.

Charleston County sheriff’s deputies responded just before 7 p.m. to the crash on Old Georgetown Road in McClellanville. Witnesses said they had been riding ATVs when a friend behind them lost control of the four-wheeler, according to an incident report.

The owner of the ATVs told deputies he didn’t know they had left the residence, the report states.
