June 15, 2012 - Davis Creek, W. Va. - Many people underestimate how dangerous an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) can be, even when it is being driven around a private property. A man was killed after he crashed an ATV on his private property on Saturday, June 9, as reported on The Charleston Gazette.
Chris Potter, 52, was riding an ATV when, for reasons unknown, it crashed. There appears to have been no other passengers on the vehicle at the time of the accident. Exactly how the crash happened is unclear at this time.
Since ATVs are not typically driven on busy roadways, it can be easy to forget that ATV accidents can be just as serious as car accidents or motorcycle accidents. It is important to remember to take the appropriate precautions when operating any motorized vehicle. If your accident occurred because of another’s negligence, you should seek legal help to see if you have a claim worth pursuing.
