A 19-year-old Illinois woman remained in the Erie County Medical Center emergency room at mid-morning today, after suffering a back injury in an ATV accident Sunday evening, State Police at Fredonia reported.

Haley Schluter, of Rock Island, Ill., was four-wheeling with family members on a trail off Glasgow Road in the Town of Pomfret and attempting to go up a steep incline, troopers said. Her ATV started to fall backwards, forcing her off the vehicle. Her father, Scott, who was riding behind her, jumped off and attempted to prevent the ATV from tipping.

Haley Schluter was taken by Allstar Ambulance to ECMC, while her father, who also suffered a back injury, was taken to Brooks Memorial Hospital and released, authorities stated.
