A South Colton boy was injured when an ATV he was driving struck a tree.
Eli E. Thomas, 10, son of Brian G. and Catherine M. Thomas, South Colton, was driving an ATV when he struck a tree outside his house at 49 Windmill Road.
Brian Thomas said he arrived home and saw his son on the side lawn, but neighbors already had called for help.
Colton Fire and Rescue responded at 5:35 p.m., and Eli was taken to Swift Field to await a LifeNet helicopter to take him to Fletcher Allen Health Care, Burlington, Vt., as a precaution because of a head injury.
The Potsdam Rescue Squad assisted at the scene. Hospital personnel listed Eli as stable Thursday night.
