Two teenagers were sent to hospital after their ATV collided with a truck in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Wednesday afternoon.

A pickup truck was heading east on Birch Island Road when the ATV drove out from a side road, and collided with the truck on the passenger side.

RCMP say the 16-year-old driver and his 17-year-old male passenger were both thrown from the ATV.

The driver was wearing a helmet, but the passenger was not.

There was no immediate word on the extent of their injuries, but police said their lives were not at stake.
