Deadly ATV Crashes in Mississippi
ATVs appear to be rising in popularity across the country. However, these vehicles are deceptively hazardous. They can be dangerous if not used appropriately, posing a risk to yourself and the people around you. Each year, about 700 individuals are killed and 135,000 people are wounded in ATV accidents.
A family member's unexpected death is a sad tragedy. It's much worse when it's due to someone else's negligence.
