A Cody man was injured when he rolled his ATV in Badger Basin on Tuesday night.

Responding personnel from the Park County Sheriff's Office, Powell Valley Hospital Ambulance Service and the Powell Volunteer Fire Department found Pierce lying next to his overturned ATV. Pierce was conscious and breathing, but somewhat disoriented; he was taken to Powell Valley Hospital for treatment, according to a Thursday news release from the sheriff's office.

Pierce crashed about 50 feet west of Little Sand Coulee Road and about one-and-a-half miles off of Wyoming Highway 294, the release said. Two other adults, including Pierce's girlfriend, and a child had been with Pierce in the general area but didn't see him crash.

“So far, no citations have been issued, however the crash still under investigation,” sheriff's spokesman Lance Mathess said in the release.
