A Pineville man was charged with wanton endangerment following an ATV wreck on Friday that threw him and two others from the ATV.
Charles Partin III, 39, was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, operating an ATV on a roadway and operating on suspended/revoked license.
According to the arrest citation, the Bell County Sheriff’s Department responded to a two-vehicle collision on KY 92. Officers said Partin reported he had been operating the ATV on KY 92 when he was rear-ended by a truck, which ejected Jacqualine Hobbs, 21, and a 17-month-old baby from the ATV.
All three riders were transported to Pineville Community Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, according to Bell County Volunteer Fire Department Public Relations Officer Bucky Shelby.
The citation states the ATV had no tail lamps. Partin was placed under arrest and transported to the Bell County Detention Center. He was also charged with no tail lamps, failure of non-owner operator to maintain required security, no/expired registration plates and no/expired Kentucky registration receipt.
Hobbs was later served a bench warrant and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and theft by failure to make required disposition of property. She would be lodged in the detention center.
