---- — A Miami County man was airlifted to Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital Sunday after he crashed his Polaris ATV into a tree, according to the Miami County Sheriff Department.

Sgt. Ron Dausch said Jason Hunt, 37, Amboy, was westbound on 800 South when he fell after making a 90-degree turn onto 650 East.

After falling, he got up and continued to drive 15 feet before hitting a tree. Dausch said the investigation is ongoing, but intoxication appears to have been a factor.

Hunt remains in critical condition at Lutheran Health Network.
