A 26-year-old adult and 8-year-old child were injured in an all-terrain vehicle rollover crash Friday night in northwest Palm Bay, city spokeswoman Keely Leggett said.

The child was flown via medical helicopter to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando with partial loss of sensation to lower extremities, News 6 partner Florida Today reported.

The adult was taken by ambulance to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne.

The crash occurred in the 600 block of Castanada Street, a short residential street northeast of the intersection of Malabar Road and Jupiter Boulevard.

The adult and child were riding on the ATV when it appears to have struck a ditch on the side of the road, Leggett said.

No other details have been released.
