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.
The Florida Highway Patrol was on hand to respond to reports of an ATV accident that occurred in Osceola County on the night of Saturday, May 18th. According to the subsequent reports, the incident happened at around 9:30 at night, and involved two individuals who were traveling throughout a private property on a side-by-side ATV, which is a small off-road (all-terrain vehicle) machine that is often able to carry up to six people. These vehicles are often used on farms or on large properties where people routinely need to get from one end to another quickly.
Deputies with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department are attempting to formulate a plan to cut down on the number of individuals illegally driving ATVs such as dirt bikes and four-wheelers along highways and other primary roads. According to numerous news stories and police reports, groups of ATVs have recently been caught on camera creating severe road hazards as their drivers weave in and out of traffic, cut off cars, and tear through busy intersections while attempting to pull off “stunts” such as wheelies.
An ATV accident in Osceola County has left members of the Florida Highway Patrol working to uncover some precise details that led to the death of a 58-year-old individual. What is known at this point in time is that the incident involved an all-terrain vehicle (ATV for short) that was, at the time of the incident, carrying three people. It appears that the person in charge of driving the ATV was a 9-year-old child.
Early in September, a 6-year-old child and an 8-year-old child were spending time together in the Polk County city of Lakeland. According to a report from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the two children were riding around on an ATV (all-terrain vehicle) along a track covered in dirt somewhere within the city limits. It is not clear if the children were in the woods or if the track was somewhere within sight of homes. It is also not clear if either of the children’s parents were at the scene to monitor what the children were doing and ensure that they were not engaged in anything too dangerous.
