An Ellendale man is in critical condition after he was thrown from his ATV July 28 while turning onto Route 16.

Frederick J. Everitt, 22, was driving a Honda Rubicon four-wheeler southbound on Webbs Road approaching Route 16 when he failed to stop at the intersection. He turned eastbound on Route 16 in front of a pickup truck driven by David R. MacGregor, 23, of Ellendale, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.

The pickup hit the rear of the ATV; the impact ejected Everitt, who was not wearing a helmet, onto the roadway, Fournier said. He was taken to Christiana Medical Center where he is in critical condition.

MacGregor and a 27-year-old passenger were properly restrained; they were treated and released from Milford Memorial Hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries, Fournier said.
