DOTHAN, Ala. -- An Alabama mayor is continuing to recover from an accident involving an all-terrain vehicle.

The Dothan Eagle reports that Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz was able to preside over Tuesday's city commission meeting, but is still healing after suffering a broken collarbone and four broken ribs in the ATV accident.

It happened July 27 near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Schmitz said he made a trip up a mountainous area with family and was on his way down when the accident occurred.

He said something caught hold of the back end of his ATV, catapulting him into the air and sending him tumbling down the mountain several yards. Schmitz managed to finish the ride down the mountain before seeking help.
