LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- A man and woman have suffered injuries in an ATV accident in Wheeler Pass northwest of Las Vegas this morning.

Few details are available about the 9:30 a.m. accident because it is in a remote area only accessible by helicopter, Metro Lt. John Liberty told News 3 shortly after 11 a.m.

"There were six people involved, but only two were injured. The woman has injuries to her head while the man has neck, back and hip injuries," Liberty said.

The victims were flown to UMC Trauma by Mercy Air shortly after noon. 

No specifics were available about how the accident occurred, Liberty said.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
