Terrible thing to happen.Does anyone know the details about what may have happened here:
It's crazy here how many kids grow up on atv's. No way in hell the kids understand the risks nor have the maturity to make decisions that may save their life. Parents get way to complacent, kids been riding for years, no injuries, then bam, there dead. I had to pull over and help a kid t-boned on a quad by truck going 60+ on US 1 years ago, no safety gear. Nearly died right in front of me. These kids might as well be driving a car, it's safer.
Doesn't surprise me at all.
Are you talking about the accident I originally posted about?A tragedy regardless of the circumstances. In this case 3 friends were out having fun on a UTV. The young lady was driving. Somehow the UTV turned over and catapulted her through the windshield. She died immediately from head injuries. No alcohol involved just inexperienced kids with no fear having a good time.
Yes and most have seat belts. The typical safety standard of seat belts in vehicles equipped with a ROP is to contain you in the vehicle in the event of a rollover. However the seat belts are pointless if you roll on a stump between the bars.A UTV is one of those side-by-side things, right? Don't they have seat belts?
