A Wakarusa girl was taken to the hospital after an ATV malfunction pinned her.

Martin Stepp was attempting to move an ATV out of a shed. The accelerator malfunctioned and caused the ATV to jerk forward and stand on its rear wheels.

The front of the ATV struck 15-year-old Mariah Stepp in the face and pinned her briefly between the ATV and the shed. She was taken to Elkhart General Hospital. The accident occurred around 5 p.m. two miles south of Wakarusa city limits.

The Forest Service says it will release a final decision Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014, on how much timber to log from the Sierra Nevada's largest wildfire in recorded history. Last year's Rim Fire burned 400 square miles including parts of Yosemite. A debate has since raged about sending burned and dead trees to lumber mills or leave them and let nature take its course.
