A 15-year-old girl injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Adams, N.D., has been identified.

Kelsey Misialek of Adams was eastbound on a 2005 Bombardier ATV on Third Street when she was clipped by Kim Bylin, 60, of Adams as she attempted to pass his 2010 Ford pickup around 5:30 p.m. Thursday.

Bylin started turning left into a lot on Third Street near the intersection with Farup Street when the front end of his pickup made contact with the ATV, causing it to roll over. Misialek was thrown from the ATV and suffered serious head injuries.

Misialek was taken to First Care Hospital in Park River, N.D., and then flown to an undisclosed hospital in Fargo by Life Flight.

Her status remains unknown. Both Sanford and Essentia hospitals in Fargo said they had no record of Misialek being in their care.

Bylin was not injured.

The accident remains under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
