A 20-year-old Blenheim man was flown to hospital after he was run over by an ATV quad bike in the Marlborough Sounds.

Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter crewman Hamish Pirie said the man was going up a hill at Okiwi Bay when he fell off the bike just before 8pm on Saturday.

The bike ran over him as it went backwards down the hill, Mr Pirie said.

The man was flown to Nelson Hospital with an arm and hip injury.
