LF girl injured in ATV accident

A 15-year-old Little Falls girl was injured Sunday, April 28, when she was knocked off the ATV she a passenger on.

Julian Phengsaksy, 19, Little Falls, was driving a Polaris ATV with Haley Schumacher, 16, Little Falls as a passenger. Phengsaksy was driving behind and pushing a Honda ATV driven by Dakota VanHercke, 19, of Little Falls, about 9:45 p.m.
