The operator of an all-terrain vehicle was arrested Sunday in Audubon County, following an investigation into a crash that sent three people to the hospital. The Audubon County Sheriff’s Department says 25-year old Cale James Bolick, of Gray, was arrested at around 4-a.m. Sunday on OWI/1st Offense, Reckless Driving and Interference with Official Acts charges, following the crash, which occurred earlier that same morning, northeast of Gray.

Officials say three passengers on the 2006 Artic Cat ATV were injured. 39-year old Brandi Kay Vansickel and 17-year old Megan Boehm, both of Gray, and 18-year old Helena Trusty, of Denison, were transported to the Audubon County Hospital by Audubon Fire and Rescue. Bolick, and another passenger on the ATV, Casey Steven Bolick, of Gray, were not hurt during the crash.

Authorities say the vehicle was traveling north on Goldfinch, when it collided with a bridge railing and went into the east ditch before rolling over. The incident remains under investigation, and additional charges are pending. Damage to the ATV was estimated at $1,500.
