MARINETTE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A pair of ATV accidents this weekend in Marinette County remains under investigation by the state Department of Natural Resources.

The first crash happened around 9:30 p.m. Friday in Middle Inlet. A 49-year-old man was operating an ATV when he hit a pile of dirt. Both the man and the vehicle went airborne.

DNR officials say the man suffered life-threatening injuries and he was airlifted to a hospital. The man was not wearing a helmet at the time. No word yet on his current condition.

The other crash happened in the Crivitz area on Saturday night. DNR officials say a 13-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl went out for a ride on a trial just before midnight. The ATV hit a mud puddle and both teens were ejected. They suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Officials with the DNR say there doesn't appear to be anything suspicious about either incident.
