A crash involving an ATV late Monday night on the Lorain County Fairgrounds sent two people to the hospital.

Lorain County Fair President Ron Picworth said that the two people who were riding the ATV were concessionaires. “I don’t know them personally but I am aware that they are concessionaires for this years Fair.” Picworth said that he was at home at the time of the crash but received a call immediately after the incident. “I came right over from my house and when I got here the rescue people and Sheriff were all here. Right now the Sheriff is conducting their investigation so I don’t want to say too much right now, plus the family have not been notified yet.”

Picworth said that although there are no written rules banning concessionaires from having ATV’s or Golf Carts on the property it is something that they try to discourage. “It’s tough because we have so many guests walking the property then to have these motorized carts or ATV’s driving around can cause problems. It is an issue that we are looking at for the future.”

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Department is investigation the crash.
