Ryan Man Injured in ATV Accident

A Ryan man was injured in an ATV accident late Friday morning.

The Iowa State Patrol says 42-year old Matthew Ries was driving an ATV towing a trailer at 3131 150th Street southwest of Ryan around 10:30 am. Authorities say the lawn mower on the trailer shifted weight, causing Ries to lose control, go into the ditch and roll over.

Ries was ejected from the ATV. He was airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids.

His condition is not available.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Ryan Fire and Rescue and Regional Medical Center EMS assisted at the scene.
