ATV DUI Kills Dory, the Pony
A Yorkville man was charged with driving an all-terrain vehicle under the influence after he struck a Shetland pony that had gotten loose in Kendall County, officials said.
The accident happened early Sunday at 3 a.m. as Quintin Wissmiller, 33, was driving a Polaris Ranger ATV in Yorkville, said Kendall County Sheriff’s Deputy Craig French.
The pony had to be euthanized due to the severity of her injuries, which included a broken back.
Wissmiller was charged with DUI and driving with a revoked driver’s license.
