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.
