Ottawa man seriously hurt in ATV incident

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2016

An ATV accident had an Ottawa man being flown to the suburbs for medical treatment.

Just after one Tuesday afternoon, 33-year-old Philip Shoemaker was moving an ATV on his property north of Ottawa when the throttle stuck open. Deputies say Shoemaker ended up hitting a fence where the ATV turned over onto its side.

Suffering from an arm and leg injury, Shoemaker was flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. He’s still at the hospital where he’s being listed in “good” condition.
