ATV crash sends two to hospital


TOWN OF TURIN — Two men were hospitalized following an ATV crash on a railroad bed in Lewis County late Thursday night, according to law enforcement officials.

Sheriff’s deputies said Walter Eagan, 43, of Glenfield, was riding on a New York Central Railroad bed at about 11:31 p.m. when his 2002 Yamaha Grizzly struck a tree limb that had fallen into his path. The railroad bed is part of the county ATV trail system.

Deputies said Eagan and rider Joshua Streeter, 26, of Glenfield, were both thrown off the ATV. Deputies said the pair were both hospitalized, with Streeter’s injuries requiring a transfer to University Hospital in Syracuse.

The crash remains under investigation.
