Norman Dohner, 43, of Hamilton was airlifted by a Parkview Samaritan helicopter to Parkview Regional Medical Center at Fort Wayne for treatment of head trauma and internal injuries.
His passenger, Victoria R. Dohner, 14, of Butler suffered back and leg pain. A Parkview DeKalb EMS ambulance took her to Parkview Regional Medical Center.
Police said Norman Dohner was driving northbound in the 400 block of C.R. 65. His Polaris four-wheel ATV went left of center and sideswiped a southbound 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck driven by Michael Frost, 60, of Butler.

A witness to the accident told police that the ATV was traveling at a high rate of speed.
