Iuka Man Lays on Ground for 10 Hours Sunday After Crashing ATV

IUKA — A 59-year-old Iuka man lay on the ground for 10 hours Sunday after he crashed his ATV in the woods near Iuka.

According to the Iuka Fire Department, Tony Walker was riding with others Sunday when he crashed his ATV off Cedar Road southwest of Iuka.

The others reportedly thought he had taken a shortcut but when he wasn’t at home when they arrived they became concerned and went back along the same route in search of Walker.

They reportedly found him lying on the ground near the wrecked ATV. Iuka firefighters and Marion County EMS responded and transported Walker to Salem Township Hospital for treatment.
