Two Rhinelander men were injured Saturday in a UTV crash in the town of Harrison, Lincoln County officials said.

The crash happened on John Bailey Trail, in the area of Hwy. 17 and Bowman Road.

The 34-year-old driver was ejected from the UTV after going off a trail and down the hill, colliding with trees, police said.

His passenger, a 21-year-old Rhinelander man, remained inside the vehicle and was also injured.

Alcohol was not a factor, but police say speed could have contributed to the crash. Neither man was wearing a seat belt or a helmet, police said.

Deputies, along with the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources, Oneida County Med One and Crescent First Responders responded to the crash.

No names have been released.
