A Magoffin County man was hospitalized following an ATV accident Wednesday on Route 7 near Higgins Branch.
Orville White suffered head trauma, severe throat injuries, and lacerations to his upper body after losing control of his ATV and crashing into a utility pole, according to Magoffin County Rescue Squad captain Carter Conley.

White was unconscious when emergency personnel arrived on the scene, and was treated and stabilized by paramedics, Conley said.
White was transported by medical helicopter to Cabel-Huntington Medical Center in Huntington, West Virginia.
The accident happened at approximately 11:30 a.m.
A victim of a one-vehicle accident Saturday also required air medical services when Josh Honaker, 19, lost control of his vehicle on KY 1888 near Dotson Branch.
According to Captain Conley, Honaker suffered facial injuries, chest abrasions, and a severely lacerated right arm.
Honaker was flown to University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.
Another one-vehicle accident Friday at 10 a.m. left a Magoffin County woman injured, but Amy Blanton reportedly suffered non-life threatening injuries after she lost control of the car she was driving.
Blanton, according to Conley, was traveling west bound on KY 460 west of Salyersville when her vehicle left the roadway and traveled over a 100-foot high embankment.
Conley said Blanton was out of her vehicle when emergency responders arrived. She was transported to Paul B. Hall Medical Center in Paintsville by DHP Ambulance.
Rescue squad members also responded to a trail bike accident that left a juvenile with two broken bones in his right led.
The juvenile was taken to ARH West Liberty and later transported to a Lexington hospital. His name was not released.
Two accidents kept the local rescue squad busy Saturday evening and members responded to a wreck Sunday morning. No injuries were reported in those accidents, Conley reported.
