LAKE COUNTY -- The Lake County Sheriff's Department says a man remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries at MetroHealth Medical Center after an ATV crash.

They say that about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, the accident occured on Middle Ridge Road in Perry Township.

Zachary Knight, 20, and his passenger, Nicholas Clark, 20, were westbound on an ATV, with Kody Hollingshead following them on another ATV.

Knight slowed his ATV and since he didn't have tail lights installed, Hollingshead didn't see them and struck Knight's rear tire, deputies said.

None of the three were wearing helmets.

Hollingshead was ejected from the ATV and EMS had him flown to MetroHealth.

Neither Knight nor Clark were injured but investigators said alcohol was a factor in the crash. Knight was arrested and charged with OVI and other traffic violations.

Clark was charged with underage consumption.
