MELROSE, Minn. (KNSI) A Melrose teenager suffered minor injuries in an ATV accident Saturday.

Law enforcement and medical personnel were dispatched to 300th Street east of 306th Avenue in St. Martin Township.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says 16 year-old Mitchell Funk was driving an ATV behind 15 year-old Benjamin Blonigen of Freeport when Blonigen stopped due to poor visibility. Funk then struck Blonigen's four-wheeler and was thrown from his own ATV as it rolled several times.

Funk was taken to the Melrose Hospital by a family member.

The sheriff's report says neither boy was wearing a helmet.
