ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Three people were injured, two seriously, during a fundraiser in Jerseyville over the weekend.

During the event at the Hillbillie Ranch ATV Park, a 37-year-old man and 16-year-old girl had to be airlifted to a hospital after being involved in an accident near a mud pit late Saturday night. Their injuries were described as significant.

The Mud Spree was a three day event, which in addition to the mud pit, featured live music.
