A security guard at Hidden Valley Golf Course in Somerset was injured yesterday evening when he crashed into a pond while pursuing a trespasser on an ATV.
During his patrol, the security guard observed an ATV at the gate to a private roadway on Hidden Valley property. He pursued the ATV down the roadway, and when the ATV diverted as it reached a pond, the security guard was unable to turn off in time, said Trooper John Matchik of the Somerset state police barracks.
The security guard was injured and was airlifted to Conemaugh Hospital. The driver of the ATV was not found in the pond after an extensive dive team search.
The case will likely be handled as a criminal trespass, said Trooper Matchik.
Anyone with information pertaining to the incident is asked to call the state police at 814-445-4104.
