The Coast Guard medevaced an injured 50-year-old woman on Friday after an ATV accident in Saltery Cove.

The accident was reported to the Kodiak Police Department, but “due to the nature of the injuries and the remote location of the accident,” the police department asked for assistance from the Coast Guard, the report said.

The Coast Guard dispatched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and crew to the scene. The helicopter picked up the woman and flew her to the Kodiak Municipal Airport, where emergency medical personnel took over.
