HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

A woman is recovering in the hospital after rescue workers say she fell off an ATV Saturday night.

Dallas Bay volunteer firefighters, along with Hamilton County EMS and Walden's Ridge volunteer firefighters, responded to the accident call around 5:45pm. Emergency responders say the 63-year-old woman received injuries to her head and arms when her ATV flipped on a trail near Barker Road in Falling Water.

According to officials, a motorist driving behind the woman, reported the terrain became very steep which caused the victim to fall off the ATV and roll on top of her.

The woman was airlifted to a local hospital. Dallas Bay volunteer firefighters requested Lifeforce to fly her to the hospital due to her serious injuries. Her name has not been released.
