2010 ATV Deaths on the Rise in Indiana? Jared Douglas and Abigail Hamilton KIlled 1st Two Weekends in April


If you just check out the Indiana website on All-Terrain Vehicles, they don’t seem so scary: according to the site’s statistics, 179 people died over a 26 year time span. That doesn’t seem very high, considering that ATVs ramble over rough terrain in wilderness areas; however, the site itself admits that data between 2006-2008 is incomplete.

Jared Douglas, 12, was killed the first weekend in April in an ATV accident, and Abigail Hamilton, 23, was killed in an ATV accident the following weekend. These two deaths should caution all ATV riders of just how dangerous these machines can actually be.

If you or your family plan to ride an All Terrain Vehicle, please be careful. These things are dangerous, and people going out for weekend fun are dying from them.
