NEW ATV rider injured in fall from Zillah cliff

Yakima Herald-Republic

ZILLAH — A man riding an ATV was hospitalized Wednesday after he plunged over a cliff overlooking Interstate 82.

The man, whose name and age wasn’t immediately available, was taken to Yakima Regional Cardiac and Medical Center with cuts around his eye, said Deputy Chief Allen Walker with Yakima County Fire District No. 5.

His condition is unknown.

The man was dumping yard trimmings from a trailer attached to the ATV in the 600 block of First Avenue about 12:30 p.m. when he somehow went over the cliff, Walker said.

“Backed too far, who knows what happened?,” he said.

A motorist on I-82 saw the man fall and called authorities, Walker said.

Firefighters found the man at the bottom of the roughly 25-foot cliff.

“He was actually talking to us, in pretty good spirits considering the condition he was in,” Walker said.
