ATV's are not death traps you moron. They are no more dangerous than the person dirving it. There is a time and a place for ATVs just like there is a time and a place for any other vehicle. Drive an ATV on an improved road and yes it is dangerous. Drive a car in the ocean and it is dangerous too. Cars are not designed for the ocean, and ATVs are not designed for improved roads. Inanimate objects are not "death traps" until a human makes them one.

Why not hold the story until identification is released? Another half vast Sentinel non-story with no flesh on it. "Martians land in Eola Park - News at 11 pm ?"

No, they're only as dangerous as the person riding them, just like the operator of a motorcycle, a car, a train, a bus, a bicycle, a skateboard.....

ATVs are no more dangerous than bicycles. Of course you can break limbs and die from bike accidents if you are not being careful. If you disagree then you don't know what you're talking about.

ah, another no-helmet death on an ATV. but guess what, I wore no helmet driving/riding ATVs. of course that's only b/c I was in the woods and only went up to 3rd gear. nonetheless, I should've worn a helmet but there weren't any available. my advice to everyone (including myself) is go buy a helmet. they won't be that expensive.

Stop the ignorant comments. I know the victim. Keep your mouth shut until you know the details. Every jumps to conclusions about stupidity and ignorance not even knowing anything more than what the morons from the news tell you. Riding an atv does not mean automatic death or injury, things happen. When a family member of yours dies in a car accident would you make the same comments.

According to the news, he was wearing a helmet. Unfortunately helmets and other protection do not always save lives. People die wearing seatbelts sometimes. This person died doing something he was obviously enjoying. I hope that gives some comfort to his family and friends.

It amazes me that there is so much more to this story than any of the media let out - protecting someone famous maybe? The true story lies in who he was racing with......never heard about the other person huh?
