LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Two people have suffered critical injuries in an all-terrain vehicle crash in rural Douglas County.

Douglas Country Sherriff’s Office public information officer Steve Lewis says a 22-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were thrown from the ATV after it struck a deer. The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/1wNG0xt) reports a driver found the ATV on its side early Saturday about five miles south of Lawrence and called for help. The man and woman were unconscious when deputies arrived, and first responders described their injuries as critical.

The man was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition. The woman was taken to the University of Kansas Hospital. Lewis says her condition is listed as serious.
