Dubuque Boy Hurt in ATV Accident

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — A 14-year-old boy has been taken to an Iowa City hospital after he was injured while driving an all-terrain vehicle in Dubuque County.

The Dubuque County Sheriff's Office says Alex Womack Jr., of Dubuque, was driving the ATV on Wednesday afternoon at the Barrington Lakes subdivision on the west side of Dubuque. The office says Alex was injured when the ATV rolled over on top of him.

He was taken to The Finley Hospital in Dubuque and then transferred to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

A university spokesman didn't immediately return messages from The Associated Press on Thursday.
