Two people were injured, one seriously, in an ATV crash in rural Pequot Lakes on Saturday. 

According to the Cass County Sheriff's Office, a 58-year-old woman and her 59-year-old male passenger were riding an ATV on a driveway near 17th Avenue Southwest at 7:34 p.m. on May 8 when she "made a sharp turn causing the machine to roll," the sheriff's office said. 

They were both ejected and pinned under the ATV, the release said. 

A person in the area heard the crash and moved the ATV off the riders before rendering aid.

The driver was taken to a hospital in Brainerd for unknown injuries, while the passenger was taken to a St. Cloud hospital for serious injuries, the release says. 

The sheriff's office says alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash but the incident is still under investigation. 

According to the Minnesota DNR, last year there were 25 ATV fatalities in Minnesota.
