A 20-year-old Jackson County man sustained a skull fracture and a broken collarbone Sunday in an all-terrain vehicle crash, police report.

Jordan T. Gardner of Seymour was first treated for his injuries at Schneck Medical Center in Seymour before being transferred to Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, according to a news release from Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Officer Scott Davis.
