Livingston — Woman Killed, 4 Others Injured in ATV Accident on Rhett’s Run

Posted on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019 at 8:42 pm by Williams Hart   

At around 8:45 p.m. on Sunday, November 10, 2019, a woman was killed and four other people were injured in an ATV accident that occurred in Polk County, Texas.

According to initial reports, a 2018 Can-Am Commander ATV was traveling southbound on Rhett’s Run, about 13 miles southeast of Livingston, when the vehicle drove off the roadway to the left where it struck an embankment. After striking the embankment, the vehicle continued traveling south and overturned.

A passenger, identified as 21-year-old Alyssa Fleming, was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the driver, 31-year-old Charity Lara, and three passengers, 29-year-old Chrystal Sonnier, 38-year-old Arturo Lara Jr., and 28-year-old Jacob Hodge, were all transported to CHI St. Luke’s Hospital for treatment.

The crash still remains under investigation.

It is unfortunate to hear of what happened to the victims in this accident. Alas, there are countless other victims who suffered the same fate. Vehicular accidents like this are awfully common nowadays. In statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents occur almost every minute of every day, and every 16 minutes, someone dies from a car accident. This can be translated to be about 6 million car accidents every year and about 37,000 people dying from them.

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are small, single- or dual-person vehicles that are used for recreational purposes on off-road courses or areas of wider land. They are not legal to be used on the streets in the United States, but people still do use them, and so accidents involving this kind of vehicle happen. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, ATVs were responsible for 125,500 injuries and 621 deaths in 2003. The number of injuries rose to 146,000 in 2006 and to 150,900 in 2007.

Statistics also show that one-third of all ATV-related fatalities reported and recorded between 1982 and 2002 were riders under the age of 16.

Vehicular accidents, especially those involving ATVs, are quite difficult for the victims and their respective families. Thankfully, there are lawyers that specialize in car accidents/ATV accidents, so if you are a victim of this kind of accident, or you know someone who is, or you lost a loved one because of this, then please never hesitate to ask for help from these lawyers. They will help you in protecting your rights and in getting you the justice that you deserve.

If someone you love was seriously hurt or killed in an accident, you may be unsure of where to turn.
