OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) - The Department of Natural Resources says a Des Moines woman was seriously injured when the all-terrain vehicle she was riding rolled over.
The DNR says the crash happened Sunday afternoon at Bluff Creek park southwest of Oskaloosa when 36-year-old Roberta Curry apparently hit a tree root, causing the four-wheel vehicle she was riding to turn sharply and roll over.
Curry was wearing a helmet, but it came off after the impact.
She was flown to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.
