A North Carolina child has been killed in an ATV accident last week. The seven-year-old boy was helping unload the ATV from a truck when his parents let him take a short ride. The family found the boy under the ATV just minutes later. The child sustained a serious injury to his head and was rushed to the hospital where he later died. The child was not wearing a helmet.
All-terrain vehicle accidents, just like this one, can happen numerous times throughout the year and many children are killed. Children are often more susceptible to injuries on an ATV compared to adults, due to their age and inexperience. While many ATV accidents are caused by a lack of experience, some ATV accidents can be caused by a design flaw or mechanical error.
