Leadwood, MO (KSDK) - A Wednesday evening accident in Washington County has left a young boy hospitalized with serious injuries, after he was thrown from an all terrain vehicle near his home.

Missouri Highway Patrol troopers tell NewsChannel-5 they responded to Stoney Point Road just north of Highway 8 around 7:50 p.m. last night after 25 year old Dennis Auten of Leadwood lost control of his Arctic Cat and flipped the vehicle into the ditch.

Both Auten and seven year old Ethan Works were thrown from the ATV. 

Ethan was transported by a Survival Flight helicopter to St. Louis Childrens hospital.  Auten was taken to a hospital in Farmington with minor injuries.
