Family Files Wrongful Death Suit in ATV Accident

Three months ago a nine-year-old energetic boy lost his life in an ATV accident. J.T. Crow died when the Yamaha Rhino he was riding in rolled over at a slow speed, pinning him underneath. The Crow family has now filed a wrongful death suit against the company. "They were going a short distance from our farm house at a very low speed," said Crow. "Our daughter went to make a turn and the Rhino flipped on to J.T. causing severe trauma to his head.” Crow says the ATV's top-heavy design and small tires make it especially prone to rollovers and that’s why they are filing the suit against Yamaha.
