ATV Accidents | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
According to an official statement released to the press from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office on February 25th, 2021, the 35-year-old victim of an ATV accident has sadly succumbed to his injuries and he passed away over the weekend. The Deltona resident had been hospitalized and fighting for his life for nearly 3 weeks after the all-terrain vehicle he was driving crashed into the side of a FedEx package delivery truck.
The operation of ATVs (all-terrain vehicles) is something that is extremely dangerous, especially when the notoriously top-heavy vehicles are being driven on a paved surface such as a roadway. Still, within the state of Florida, the operation of vehicles primarily intended for off-road purposes on roads used by cars and trucks remains a continual pastime of many people. On Wednesday, August 19th, a 16-year-old Altoona resident was riding close to Lake Dorr within Lake County when they were involved in a fatal ATV accident after driving their vehicle onto the roadway.
An accident involving a single ATV close to the city of Mims in Volusia County resulted in the death of a single individual, so say reports from the Florida Highway Patrol. Members of the FHP were on-hand to respond to the crash reports, which were made shortly after the all-terrain vehicle crashed. It is not clear if the two on the ATV were alone or if they were perhaps traveling with a group of other joyriders through the area.
It was early into the evening this past Wednesday, August 7th, when two 7-year-old girls sustained serious injuries after the all-terrain vehicle they were driving was struck by another vehicle just outside of Dunnellton in Chatmire.
