Two children were flown to a Tennessee hospital Sunday after their off-road vehicle was struck by a car.
Two men were charged after the Knox County crash. It occurred near northbound Ky. 11 and the A&B Quickstop in Barbourville, according to The Mountain Advocate.
A 9-year-old girl, Kenzie, and a 10-year-old boy, Harley, were thrown from the four-wheeled utility vehicle that resembles a golf cart. They were later taken to University of Tennessee Medical Center with injuries, The Mountain-Advocate reported.
The mother of the children, Angie Peters Farmer, posted on Facebook that her son has multiple fractured ribs and has been moved to intensive care. Farmer said her daughter has a concussion.

Two men, James Embry and Kaegan Welch-Embry, were charged with assault, marijuana possession and driving under the influence, according to the Knox County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear who was driving the car.
“Should Harley have been driving an ATV? Probably not. Should the guy have been driving (under the influence)? Absolutely not! Does that make me and Steve bad parents because our child drove an ATV? I hardly think so,” Farmer posted on Facebook.
