PSP: ATV rider endangered child

 

LEWISBURG – A Lewisburg area man has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child after allowing the child on an ATV, and then crashing it. State police say 49-year-old Jeffrey Thomas was driving the ATV with a 4-year-old girl as a passenger in a private field near Crossroads Drive in Kelly Township.

 

Troopers say he operated the ATV in a manner that put the girl at risk. Thomas crashed the ATV and the girl sustained a broken leg. Thomas was also injured in the incident last week. Charges of reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child have been filed against Thomas. (Ali Stevens)
