ATV's Too Dangerous for Children Even With an Adult

5-year-old Ethan Smith was sitting on the lap of his cousin, 32-year-old Tony Cardarelli, on a parked ATV when the boy grabbed the ATV’s throttle, causing it to move forward. Cardarelli tried to regain control of the ATV, but it crashed into a trackhoe and both Smith and Cardarelli were thrown off. Ethan Smith was pronounced dead at Washington Regional Medical Center and Cardarelli was being treated for a concussion.
