This happen close to where I live at over the Memorial day weekend...the UTV have 4 persons in it, probably not wearing seat belts and none wearing helmets.....it rolled/went down a 100 ft embankment...so sad you cannot be too careful out there when you ride your ATV or UTV......

These are serious machines.  A number of years ago a coworkers daughter died on an ATV.  She locked the front break at speed.  The ATV landed on top of her and broke her neck.  I know another H.S. friend was riding a 3-wheeler (yes it was more than a few years a go LOL)  and a deer ran into him.  It put him in the hospital for a week.

Loving the outdoors and many us have rode on them countless times, this is heartbreaking. Just trying to enjoy the outdoors but so totally avoidable. Yes, prayers to the families involved but use common sense, please!

I've had many close calls, mostly performing very slow maneuvering around obstacles.  A 500#+ object can cause a lot of damage even at slow speeds.  We had a guy up at our camp that rolled one a few years ago. Not going too fast, just caught a rut that caught him off guard and roled the atv breaking his pelvis. 

My 420 is a torquey beast, and is considered small.  Those 700cc+ machines are scarry fast and strong, more so than most people fully realize.
