An 11-year-old Kerman boy received major injuries Thursday when he crashed an ATV at the Fresno Slough west of Kerman.
The boy was riding the 2004 Honda on a private roadway east of the slough when he made an unsafe turn, struck an almond tree and was thrown from the ATV, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The boy was taken to Community Regional Medical Center. A passenger -- an 11-year-old girl -- sustained minor injuries.
