Driver Killed in Accident Caused by Avoiding ATV
Golf carts and ATVs have become more and more popular on rural roads in this area of Virginia, despite laws and regulations against them. In this area, drivers must be on the lookout for everything from bicycles and scooters to ATVs and even horses pulling carriages. Though it's important for drivers to watch out for road hazards, it's clear that this ATV did not belong on this particular stretch of highway.
Our thoughts go out to the victims' family.
Though this ATV driver was lucky enough to walk away injury free, many are not as lucky. Each year, hundreds of people are injured and killed because of ATV accidents and malfunctions. Because they're seen as recreation vehicles, many people underestimate how dangerous they can be. ATVs present the same risks as motorcycles in terms of exposure during an accident.
