A Blue Springs man remained in good condition Monday after an all-terrain vehicle overturned on him at Finger Lakes State Park on Sunday morning.

Jack C. Meinhold, 56, was taken by ambulance to University Hospital after his ATV flipped while he was driving up an embankment at a park campground, according to a report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Boone County Fire Protection District Division Chief Gale Blomenkamp.

Blomenkamp said he did not know if Meinhold was wearing a helmet.
