The driver of an ATV that rolled over near Harvard and left two children ejected and injured, one of which had to be flown to the hospital, has been cited, court records show.

The Harvard Fire Protection District and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 9:45 p.m. on June 16 to the 17200 block of Lincoln Road in unincorporated Harvard.

McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Eric Ellis said deputies were called for an ATV crash with injuries.

The crash involved a 38-year-old man who was operating the vehicle. Court records show the driver was Keith W. Parr, 38, of Harvard.

Parr’s juvenile sons were passengers on the ATV, Ellis said.

The man told deputies that he was navigating a turn on Lincoln Road when he lost control.

Ellis said the ATV rolled over into the ditch, leaving the two children ejected and injured.

A Mercyhealth REACT helicopter was requested and landed at the scene.

A 6-year-old child was transported by helicopter to the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin.

A 4-year-old child was transported by ambulance to Javon Bea Hospital — Riverside in Rockford.

Both children suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were later discharged from the hospitals, Ellis said.

Court records show Parr was recently cited for child endangerment, a Class A misdemeanor, in connection with the incident.

A criminal complaint said Parr operated the ATV in an unsafe manner, causing the crash.

Parr is scheduled to appear in court for an initial hearing where he will enter a plea on August 15.
