A Sterling Heights man was taken to the hospital after a late night ATV accident in Sanilac County.

On July 6 at 1:45 a.m., central dispatch received a call about an injury accident on Lakewood Road, near Lakeview Road in Worth Township.

Investigators learned a 27-year-old man from Sterling Heights was driving a 2017 Honda four-wheel ATV and lost control.

He was ejected from the ATV and the vehicle landed on its side, the Sanilac County Sheriff's Office said.
